HOPE Education

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 decided from the beginning that we would follow a collaborative model - to come alongside existing schools and educators and ask, "How can we help?" by aligning our training tasks to the local needs and working training into existing local and national plans. 


MISSION

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 to accomplish HOPE: Global Education program achieves international development goals.

Currently, the HOPE: Education program works alongside schools and organisations in:

Rwanda

Uganda

Kenya

Cambodia

Education is the key to unlocking a country’s potential for economic growth:

  • 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.
