At Hope Academy, we believe all children have the right to learn. We would like to have your support to make that possible.

Below are some of the adorable children from disadvantaged families that we hope to admit to our classes. With $500 per year sponsorship from you, a child like them will be able to access adequate care, food, uniform and an English education. This will allow them to change their future for the better, not only for them, but for their family.

If you are interested in sponsoring a child, please contact us at:

You can either select a child from the following list or let us know the specific profile of the child you would like to sponsor. Our staff will contact you to introduce other candidate students.

As a sponsor, you will receive detailed information of the progress of the child, have a strong tie with the child's family and be able to provide inputs on critical decisions for the child including, their future school selection.
