What is Sponsor-A-Child Project?
Hands of Hope is a long-term voluntary project established in January 2014 with a mission to sow seeds of change to the underserved communities through education. For the past 3 years, we have connected up to 300 university students to volunteer in refugee schools and special needs school, providing educational assistance to them on a weekly basis.
Through our involvement with the refugee community, we noticed an increasing dropout rate among refugee children due to financial struggles. With the lack of access to free education, many children struggle to stay in school and are stuck in the dilemma of pursuing an education or working to feed their families. Hands of Hope saw the struggles of these children, and we decided to raise funds for Sponsor-A-Child Project – a project which further assists students who have financial problem to return to school and gain a better education.
