Humanitarian Projects International Inc. (HPI) is a fully accredited, non-denominational, Australian not-for-profit charity, based in Caloundra Queensland, that operates by sending teams of caring volunteer workers wherever needed to relieve poverty and distress, thereby giving hope and a future to orphans and other underprivileged people of the world.
We assist by raising funds and sending teams of caring volunteers to assist and support vulnerable children and adults both in Australia and overseas by providing shelter, homes, schools, babies’ homes, clinics, agricultural and water infrastructure and other sustainable facilities while concentrating on education which is the key to lifting people out of poverty. We also offer support through child sponsorship and other on-going activities. All of HPI’s projects are fully sustainable and on-going and managed by our partner organisations in those countries.
Since its beginnings in 2006, HPI volunteers have fundraised over $500,000 to fund sustainable projects in Australia, Uganda, South Africa, Timor-Leste and Philippines without any grants or other assistance from Australian or overseas governments, State governments, local councils or any of their agencies.
Team members travel at their own expense and all committee members are volunteers, so 100% of funds raised are allocated directly to the humanitarian project currently being supported.
