Good Hope aims to provide a comprehensive community support programme to the HIV/AIDS affected, sick, lonely, vulnerable and poverty stricken within the local Majengo district. It aims to provide and promote love and support in the community.
Good Hope does this in two ways:
1) By providing free education to the local children that are excluded from government schooling due to family difficulties and/or poverty. The education offered on a 5 day a week day school basis and is volunteer driven and relies on YOU.
Since inception the organisation has experienced tremendous success and currently (as at Jan 2015) has the following students in a Good Hope sponsored further education programmes:
- 9 government primary and secondary students
- 20 private secondary school students
- 2 college students (Hotel Management course)
- 2 interns empowered to work within Good Hope for one year prior to college
- 1 student who has successfully completed a sponsored tour guide college course
With your help we aim to prepare more of our students for the 2016 enrolment.
2) By visiting the sick and needy within the community. Often this involves nothing more lending than a listening ear, sadly sometimes that is all that can be offered. Advice and counselling on HIV/AIDS related topics and women's and children rights feature as part of this aspect of our work. A knowledge of Kiswahili is needed to take on this role and we provide a comprehensive language training package.
