Welcome To The Hope Project
The Hope International School opened in November 2007 in Gardnersville, Liberia. Donors have since gifted money to renovate buildings, add a security fence, build bathrooms and provide fresh water to students and surrounding neighbors.
Each year several dozen high school students, who would otherwise not attend school, have their school fees waived and are given a spot on The Hope Project School's soccer, kickball or academic quizzing team.
The student to textbook ratio at is 16 to 1. Become a monthly donor today and help us provide more material for the school.
The Hope Project employs 42 Liberian citizens including teachers, administrators, a certified nurse, janitors and security guards.
Currently, there are 1,200 Pre-K through 12th grade students attending Hope International School. It costs $7,500 a month to run the school's current operations.

The Hope Project - Liberia, Africa
After nearly two decades of civil war, Liberia's infrastructure was devastated and it's education system destroyed. Today the country is slowly rebuilding, but it remains the fourth poorest country in the world. Our goal is to help end the cycle of poverty by providing a tuition-free, Pre-K through 12th grade school where children who otherwise couldn't afford an education can go to school, graduate with a high school diploma, and go beyond to get a job, support their family and contribute to the regrowth of their country. The Hope Project School is providing a future of dignity and hope for the children and families in Liberia. Be a part of this story of hope by donating today!
