Dear HOPE Friends,
At HOPE, we believe that every child should not only have access to a quality education and healthcare, but also the correct state of mind to be able to absorb these rights. Throughout the year we try to incorporate activities and events which uplift children's mental state. After all, what use is attaining education and healthcare and reaching adulthood with these gifts, yet not thinking that you are worthy of these blessings? Breaking the cycle of poverty means transforming someone from within - having them truly believe that they are a worthy human being. Oftentimes, it is the metamorphosis of someone's frame of mind which is the most challenging struggle. We in first-world countries know all too well that material benefits can abound in someone's life, yet mental health and self-esteem can still be lacking. For children born into poverty, this is even more apparent because when one's basic needs are not being met, the floodgates to a perpetual cycle of low self-worth can open.
