Good Hope Initiative
GOOD HOPE INITIATIVE'S HISTORY
Good Hope Initiative was founded by Director, Deo Kagimu in 2006 and serves as a community based NGO Certified organization that supports the needs of several families and hundreds of children.
Good Hope currently cares for over 150 orphans and runs a primary school for over 600 local children. The mission of Good Hope Initiative is to empower rural, marginalized and disadvantaged people in the local community. The goal of Good Hope is to enable the population to empower the children and community through education. This bottom up process will aid the community in ending the cycle of poverty in the village.
Present Day at Good Hope
Good Hope focuses on providing educational opportunities for the community. EACH is committed to helping continue expanding their primary school while also providing secondary school opportunities for Good Hope primary school graduates.
In 2021, Good Hope had 15 secondary school students graduate! These “Pioneers” were the first to graduate Good Hope’s primary school and were the first students to participate in Good Hope’s “Sponsor a Student” program. These young minds provide a stunning example to their peers.
Today, these 15 students are pursing their Advanced Certificates of Education with is their final 2 years of high school. We are so proud of all their hard work.
The Future of Good Hope
Deo’s vision over the next five years is focused on educating the students through secondary school and building additional permanent classrooms in a new vertical building. Deo would also like to expand the number of students who are able to attend secondary school while the Pioneers attend college. EACH looks forward to working with Deo on these exciting plans for the future.
