To round off 2018, Land of hope held no less than three parties between Christmas and New Year's. The children showed their talents on stage, sang, danced and enjoyed plenty of food and cake.
Part of making Land of Hope feel like home is to do fun activities. 2019 has been kicked off with football and sports tournaments bringing the children closer to the personnel.
Aside from the fun and games, we also rescued two new boys named Godspower og Gideon. Both boys had been accused of being witches and left alone to survive in the streets. They've settled in well at Land of Hope and enjoy being with the other children.
With your help and support, our children can play and connect with each other through fun activities.
We are ever thankful for your continuous support and look forward to 2019.
Our children at Land of Hope are back in school after a wonderful summer break. They received new uniforms, bags, notebooks, pencils, and other materials to get them ready for the new school year in new classes.
All of them have advanced to start at the next level. Some children also switched schools since they have started junior and senior secondary school.
This year, the children can overcome the challenge of getting to school during the rainy season. Exxon Mobil donated our very own school bus, a brand new 30-seater Toyota Coaster. The children are thrilled to be seated in a warm bus and wave full of excitement as they drive to school.
With your help and support, our children smile, learn and grow every day.
We are so thankful for your continuous support and look forward to our journey ahead.
Thank you for your continuous support. The school year ended and a new one has begun. Your donations help ensure that all children at Land of Hope receive the materials they need for school including books, pens, uniforms, backpacks etc.
When the children don't go to their respective schools, they go to Land of Hope's own "school" in our Vocational and Entrepreneurial Building. Here, both children at Land of Hope and children in nearby communities learn skills in music, art, cooking, design, IT and much more.
The building is a career center especially for those children who are not capable of going to university. They will instead receive vocational skills here to get the job they dream of. The centre has just started running and we are still setting up classrooms and buying all tools necessary. Your donations help make this happen.
Through our Facebook page and monthly newsletter, you can always stay updated on how our donations are spent.
We look forward to the time ahead and hope you will continue to join our journey.
