Mission and Vision


Help for Optimism’s mission is to contribute to the resilience and development of vulnerable communities. We aim to secure health, dignity, and wellbeing by empowering people in a perspective of sustainability. Our strategy is to provide access to clean water, improved sanitation, and healthcare. We maintain a global approach, encompassing all drivers of development. We take the lead from our partners, providing a catalyst for the change they want to see in their communities.


We see a future in which all people have access to quality healthcare, clean water, and improved sanitation. We conceive of a future in which people have ownership over their resources, both human and material. We envision a world free from unjust suffering, where each and every person has agency over his or her life.
