A Walking Tour of School in July 2019
Take a look and enjoy!
Check out those photos of the latest developments at HOPSYG from July 2018.
Alan came to Kenya to buy the land with Fred (Co-founder) using our Shanghai fundraising. Matt and Madeline Shugert (volunteers who Alan met in Shanghai) came to visit also. Matt and Madeline are music teachers and they organized two very successful guitar lessons/courses which raised over $4,000. They also taught some music classes with traditional Ghanain instruments.
Do not train children to learn by force and harshness, but direct them to it by what amuses their minds, so that you may be better able to discover with accuracy the peculiar bent of the genius of each.
Our Current Projects
2017, Dreaming About a Secondary School
Just because, they deserve it!
When given a chance, children are eager to learn and they do it very fast. Seeing their improvement inspires us every day and gives us the strength to keep going and continue fighting for a better future. The project is still ongoing and we are constantly looking for new donations to improve our school.
We are currently working on raising 20,000 euros to buy an extra piece of land next to our current primary school and build there the secondary school.
Our Medical Project
When education and food is not quite enough
Life is full of small and big boo boos from untreated medical problems (e.g. infected wounds/cuts, dog bites, broken bones) to HIV/AIDS and tuberculosis. Often, their families don't have the resources to treat them correctly so we started providing emergency medical care.
As costs grew higher, we decided to offer emergency medical assistance after one of our most serious cases happened. Kalimbo, one of our students, developed a skin infection that was neglected and ended up infecting his lung and causing tuberculosis.
After this traumatic experience we could not risk putting our children's life in danger any more. Our medical project was born.
We know, we are the best at smiling 😄
