Operation Hope Foundation is a Singapore registered charity with operations in Cambodia and Nepal. Our vision is to expand to ten countries by 2014. Our programs are OHF CHild (Orphanages), OHF Volunteer ( volunteer go overseas for community outreach projects), OHF Skills ( training and livelihood skills) and OHF Solutions (applying First World Technology to Third World problems). We have substantial operations in Cambodia . Please check our web site www.ohf.org.sg. We are a very hard driving, technically savvy and hard working and fast paced charity.
We are looking for committed staff who are keen to help the poor in developing countries. The work is challenging, exciting and offers opportunities for creativity and self-development. With a small team, each member plays an important role as there is a high degree of interdependency.
OHF principles of working as a team are:
1. Conquer the unknown together
2. It is impossible only, because you think so
3. Do not confuse activity with work
4. When in doubt, ASK
5. Do what is needed, not what you like
6. Allow different ways of achieving the same results
7. Contribute facts not just opinions
8. What you do affect others
9. The Work is the Boss
10. No one has all the answers
We expect our staff to have good decision-making skills, humility to learn and acquire new knowledge and skills, and to have the same vision and passion to help the poor.

In Romans 12, Paul says we have different gifts which we can use to serve. He writes: 4 For just as each of us has one body with many members, and these members do not all have the same function, 5 so in Christ we, though many, form one body, and each member belongs to all the others. 6 We have different gifts, according to the grace given to each of us. If your gift is prophesying, then prophesy in accordance with your faith; 7 if it is serving, then serve; if it is teaching, then teach; 8 if it is to encourage, then give encouragement; if it is giving, then give generously; if it is to lead, do it diligently; if it is to show mercy, do it cheerfully.
