Our Team dreams big. We work in communities in 14 countries across Africa and Eastern Europe. By working to empower communities and help children, we give roots to societies to grow, develop and flourish.
How can my school help?
School involvement is very important to us as we truly believe that by engaging children and students, developing their awareness and giving them opportunities to act, they will grow to be compassionate and giving. From pre-school to secondary school, there are lots of ways for your class to get involved.
A message from our team leader, CEO Peter Heaney
“Our HOPE is that we can increase awareness, empower communities and improve the lives of children around the world. We need you to help us make a difference, from students to teachers, from companies to individuals, together we can impact the lives of thousands of children. Every child counts. I look forward to working with you all.”
