Youth in Kenya face many challenges. At the heart of these challenges is poverty that makes them vulnerable to involvement in risky behavior, cutting short their potential, dreams and lives.

It has come to the attention of HOPE worldwide Kenya that some unscrupulous individuals purporting to work for the organization are soliciting money from unsuspecting members of the public on claims that they can help them secure employment opportunities.

All jobs vacancies are advertised and awarded on a competitive basis. The recruitment process starts with a vacancy advertisement through media and/or on our website www.hopewwkenya.org. no one should pay money for selection, interviews or employment to a vacancy purported to be from our organization or for favorable consideration for any other service.

HWWK will not hesitate to take legal action against any individual/s found to be involved in this misrepresentation of job opportunities to the unsuspecting public

HOPE worldwide Kenya (HWWK) started as a volunteer organization whereby a team of Christians from the Nairobi Christian Church, a constituent of the International Churches of Christ began feeding street children, working with youth, and doing blood donor mobilization. Their benevolent activities attracted more people to participate, and before long, the vision to have an established institution that would carry out the activities in a legal, coordinated, and professional manner was born. Registration with the local NGO Board occurred in the year 1999.
