Mission statement:
Year established (YYYY): 1987
Year of registration (YYYY): 1987
Organizational structure: HOPE´87 is an initiative of the Austrian Government with HQ in Vienna and cooperating closely with the Austrian Federal Chancellery (Prime Minister Office) and the Ministry for Foreign Affairs regarding the support of youth training and youth employment projects in Africa, Asia, Latin America as well as in Central- and Eastern Europe. This international initiative is based on UN resolution 40/16 "Opportunities for Youth" adopted by the General Assembly on the occasion of the International Youth Year of the UN (1985). In an attempt to support the MDG and especially to fight poverty, locally-developed projects facilitating education, creating training and employment opportunities for young people in LDC and LLDC are supported in technical and financial ways. Special attention is given to humanitarian projects such as in Bosnia-Herzegovina, earthquake affected Pakistan, monsoon-stricken Bangladesh or cyclone devastated Myanmar. However, the provision of essential goods, food and non-food items, medication and medical care is always combined with development activities in order to support an efficient and fast recovery of the local infrastructure. In 12 countries worldwide HOPE´87 is represented by local Branch Office Manager and local HOPE’87 chapters, properly endorsed by the host government. As experts and nationals of their countries these Branch Office Managers are responsible for locating, supervising and evaluating projects, supporting the beneficiaries with the necessary know-how and establishing close working relations with national governments and authorities, NGOs and international organisations, like UNESCO, UNODC and the EC-Delegation.
