The Powerman HOPE (Harnessing Opportunities and Potentials through Empowerment) Foundation International, (POHOFI), is a humanitarian antipoverty international non-profit organization. Established with a dream to educate and support a community so that they can lift themselves out of the grasps of poverty and suffering. We are a group of humanitarian volunteers, team-oriented specialized professionals, visionaries, community-minded and broad-interest supporters from both the advanced and developing countries around the world. We coalesce and strive to mitigate suffering, extreme poverty, diseases, hunger, and injustice and to promote development in the world’s poorest communities so they may achieve long-term self-reliance. To meet this goal, POHOFI bridges needs with programs, and initiatives sustained by a network of supporters through targeted and continued fundraising activities. POHOFI’s work reaches a cross section of the society including vulnerable children, youths, drop-outs, elderly, persons with disabilities and women. We partner with communities to better understand the issues that matter most, contribute to designing innovative and sustainable solutions that bridge gaps and make them the best they can be.
