Hope Children’s Centre was founded by Emily Oroni in January of 2010. I had the privilege of working there as a volunteer teacher from March to June 2010.
In the summer of 2010, Emily and I decided to build a new Hope Children’s Centre – a bigger, better building that, most importantly of all, belongs to us. Our aim is to take in more children from the local area whose parents cannot afford to pay for their education, and to give them a pleasant, well-equipped learning environment.
Since then, building work has taken place on the new school, financed by myself and various generous donors, and co-ordinated by Mrs Oroni and her husband, Samwel. The new school is growing and thriving, having gone from 35 kids to nearly 250, and things are getting better and better, but we haven't finished yet!
