Education

Title education

From birth through the teenage years, the provision of age appropriate educational and developmental tools is crucial to an orphan's future success.


SCHOOLING

Contributing to the physical, social and cognitive growth of children through sponsorship for public school attendance, after school tutoring, or schooling within the orphanage for students who are unable to attend school locally.  Also supporting life preparation classes for teen orphans.

DEVELOPMENTAL TOOLS

Supporting endeavors to provide books, school supplies and developmental toys to promote stimulation, learning and growth for orphans of all ages. 

NUTRITION 

Nutrition is essential to a child's growth and development both physically and cognitively.  Programs aimed at supporting this goal help enhance the health and mental alertness of the children in school programs while optimizing their development.

New School Sponsorships and Some Changes

September 2017-  Four of the five boys we have been supporting for school attendance have moved to another school which does not require tuition support. We will continue to support Luke; and have also added four new student sponsorship:  Jane, Etan, Hudson and Sawyer.  Learning is an exciting time.  We are thankful to be supporting these special children.

  

 


Changes in Education Programs

January 2017-   Orphanage education programs that we have supported for many years have recently undergone a change.  The strong school model has benefitted so many of our sponsor children over the years.  With it's success, most of the programs [with the exception of one] have now been turned over to the orphanages themselves and the local government to continue to invest in the education of the children.

Beginning this month, we will continue to help support the one remaining program.  Currently sponsored in this program are Luke, Paul, Peter, Sean and Joseph.  These boys have been in the program for many years and will continue to grow and prosper from the attention given to their educational needs.

Life Skills Camp

June 2016-  Life Skills Camp is an extraordinary week-long camp for teen and young adult orphans to help them best prepare for life and for the day they leave the orphanage and are facing the world on their own.  Valuable life lessons will be held on such topics as social skills, alcohol and drug use, self-esteem, sex education, money management, online safely and self defense.  

Hope's Heart is honored to partner with the incredible organization that is hosting the camp this August. We are committed to sponsor at least ten teens.  This will truly be a life-changing experience for the students, and we invited you to invest in their lives.  If you have an interest in sponsoring a teen [$350 full sponsorship or any amount for a joint sponsorship], please contact us at info@HopesHeart.org.  

            




​​Backpacks and School Supplies for Teens

June 2016-  This August 40+ orphaned teens will be experiencing a unique opportunity to attend a summer Life Skills Camp.  Hope's Heart is honored to provide a new backpack and school supplies for them to use during the camp and to have for their personal use thereafter. 



School Nutrition Program

January 2016-  Good nutrition is essential for a child's physical and cognitive development.  Hope's Heart is honored to participate in a nutrition program that helps advance the health and development of the children.  Supplementing the orphanage diet, the children attending a school within the orphanage receive daily healthy snacks that aid in increasing their vitamin, mineral and protein intake.  The program provides vital healthy snacks with nutritional value including eggs, milk, yogurt, fresh and dried fruits, nuts, seaweed, bean curd, etc.  At the same time, the children are learning about nutrition and wise food selection at a young age.

  

September 2016-  This nutritional program is such a success that it has been renewed for another six months.


Our Newest Education Student

January/February 2016- In January we welcomed Luke as our newest school sponsorship child and look forward to getting to know him and see the impact preschool has on him.  Noah's sponsorship began in February. Already he is really enjoying school, has good large motor skills, and enjoys looking at books.

   

April UPDATE- Young Luke is adapting well to the classroom after just a few months.  His teachers report that he is a polite little boy who enjoys reading and art.  Like most preschoolers, Luke is learning to read and write numbers and recognize basic shapes.  He loves playing with the other children.
