Hopeful Africa

Mission: To foster sustainable prosperity in Africa through educational development and equal partnership. Philosophy: The commercials with starving children do not accurately represent Africa; that image is an oversimplified and hurtful caricature. Africa is full of happy, driven, intelligent people. Perpetuating that false image of a suffering Africa in need of a Western savior is at best demeaning and at worst damaging. While there are undoubtedly challenges and hurdles that many African peoples' face, Hopeful Africa believes it is important to recognize their humanity, intelligence, and determination rather than solely focusing on their perceived wants, as Western media often do...
Improve the education of 2,000 students in Kenya
 
Kenyan schools are buckling under the weight of growing student bodies and stagnating government funding. Hopeful Africa endeavors to partner with schools in Kenya, listen to their needs, and do its best to provide the financial support necessary to increase the quality of education given to Kenya's children. By providing teacher support and funding, student sponsorships, and materials such as books, computers, or electricity, Hopeful Africa is helping 2,000 students reach better education. project reportread updates from the field
Help 1,800 students get quality teachers in Kenya
 
Education is the surest path to prosperity, and teachers play a vital role in a child's education. Yet in Kenya's primary schools, the ratio of students to teachers is 47:1. When teachers are in charge of so many children, students' education can suffer. By supporting teachers, Hope 4 Africa's partner schools can hire more qualified teachers and ensure they have the tools they need to provide a quality education to students. Help Hope 4 Africa sponsor 3 teachers at 6 schools with this project. project reportread updates from the field
