Hope of Guinea is a non-governmental organization created to help the underprivileged children of Guinea. They believe that nurturing, caring and guiding children in the right path by promoting education is the cornerstones of human progress. Hope of Guinea was created with this purpose in mind to work with others to promote education and overcome violence, discrimination, and sexual abuse against the underprivileged children of Guinea.
While all children are born equal, they do not grow up the same and do not receive the same opportunities in life. Hope of Guinea was created to not only to be the voice of disadvantaged children but to support them in any which way possible. They aspire to close the gap between children who have every opportunity to succeed and those who do not. Every successful person has been helped along way therefore it is Hope of Guinea’s mission to give back to its community by putting in place a mechanism that will positively change and enhance many lives. The Board of Directors and Hope of Guinea in its entirety pledges to help promote a better life and better future for the underprivileged. As John F. Kennedy said “Ask not what your country can do for you…ask what you can do for your country.”
As a non-profit organization, and as a team, Hope of Guinea values integrity, honesty, openness, excellence, determination, constructive self-criticism, and mutual respect. They are committed to their country, children, and have a passion for achieving a greater good for their beloved country. They take on big challenges, and pride themselves on seeing them through. They hold themsleves accountable to their community, donors, and volunteers by honoring their commitments, providing results, and striving for the highest educative equality between the children of Guinea.
In regards to the donations to the scholarship fund, their scholarships will help cover tuition, uniforms, school supplies, a tutor and other education related expenses. Hope of Guinea currently has 12 scholarship recipients – 8 girls and 4 boys – whose education will be covered until they graduate high school.
