HOPE: Global's Education program started in 2006 in Rwanda to assist the post-genocide rebuilding of a decimated education system and is now operating in Rwanda, Uganda, Kenya and Cambodia strengthening education organisations through training.
The HOPE Global Education program provides ongoing training and mentoring in both the educational and vocational sectors, working within a collaborative partnership with local organisations, governments and training institutions across Africa and Asia. Training is provided in the areas of English, Child Protection, Vocational Skills, Classroom Management, Leadership, Special Needs Education, Health & Medical practices, Early Childhood, Primary and Secondary Education and more.
To give quality education to children in post-conflict countries, by developing quality teachers and schooling to help children determine their own future
Our vision is to see the quality of education increased through training such that many more of the world's children are equipped and empowered to determine their own future and participate in the global community.
We gather and brief professionals who wish to volunteer 2-3 weeks of their time to train in a developing country. Volunteers are placed within teams with specific training goals with the aim to help the Hope Education Program achieve it's international development goals.
Currently, the HOPE: Education program works alongside schools and organisations in:
For every year at school, an individual's earnings increases by 10%
A farmer’s productivity increases nearly 9% with 4 years of primary schooling.
If all girls had secondary education, child marriage would fall by 64%
If all students in low income countries left school with basic reading skills 171 million people could be lifted out of poverty. This is equal to a 12% cut in global poverty.
