Good Hope Support Organization opened its doors in October 2011 and in January 2013 it became a registered non-profit organization (NPO) and non-governmental organization (NGO) in Tanzania. Good Hope is a grassroots community organization located in the Njoro neighborhood of Moshi. Moshi is located in northern Tanzania under the watchful gaze of Mount Kilimanjaro, and Njoro is one of the least developed neighborhoods in the Moshi region.
Education is the key component of the work Good Hope does in the community, and its work is based on three pillars:
1. A free two-year secondary school preparation program and afternoon program in our youth centre
2. A primary/secondary school and vocational training sponsorship program
3. Adolescent girls empowerment program in our youth centre and in primary schools
Good Hope’s main objective is to support the students of Moshi’s suburbs from the time they finish primary school all the way up to their university education or vocational training. There is the opportunity for sponsors to fund the education of students in primary and pre-primary programs as well.
Good Hope focuses on disadvantaged youth, providing them the skills and education necessary to provide for their families in the future, while achieving their professional goals. Students living in financial hardship, and/or have family or health issues usually have little chances for higher education, but with Good Hope as a stepping stone, our students demonstrate their ability to persevere and make a difference in their community and family’s lives.
Good Hope has an open-door policy and has no religious or political affiliations. All students from the diverse population of Moshi’s community are welcomed; no one is turned away.
