Dear Friends of Hope,
We asked and you answered with your hearts and generosity. Hope International School had a building with a crumbling foundation named, "the death trap". It was in desperate need of renovation. Through your beautiful partnership the updates are coming together.
The new three-story building has 15 classrooms and eventually a bathroom on each floor. In addition, there will be an administrative office and a teacher's prep room. Each and every brick was made on school grounds, employing local workers.
We are so thankful for each and every one of you who dreams big dreams together with the staff and students.
Final additions are needed:
· Complete interiors of second and third floors
· Fully equip computer and science labs
· Add additional restrooms, teachers' workroom and school office
We received a $25,000 matching grant, so now for every dollar you give it will be matched, doubling your gift until May 1, 2020.
We extend our deepest gratitude.
"This school is only possible because you sprinkle generosity around like confetti. It is amazing to behold..."

The Hope Project
The school that hope is building.
We applied for a grant to continue the completion of our new buildings on campus. Through the generosity of the Douglass Financial Services JSB Program, we were awarded a $10,000 grant as well as a $25,000 matching funds opportunity. This is significant and we are so grateful. The tiling of the first floor and windows have been installed and the bathrooms are now functioning. It’s the first time in the history of the Hope International School that we have flushing toilets. We have until May 1, 2020 to raise the $25,000 to be matched. Little by little we are getting there. As Nelson Mandela once said, “it always seems impossible until it is done.”
