MyHope was founded by individuals of unique perspective; that is to say, they have been personally inspired by the striking juxtaposition that is the beauty and poverty of Ethiopia. For those who have not been to a developing African country, it is often difficult to truly imagine the kind of difficulties people face there on a daily basis. Think, just for a moment, where you would be without your education. How would your life be different if you were illiterate? How diminished would your sense of self-worth be? Could you truly advocate for yourself against a multitude of people who wish to cheat and manipulate you? Life without education is, simply put, extremely difficult. Our wish is not to have these questions compel you to a sense of guilt; rather, we wish for you to join in and help support the children of Ethiopia. MyHope works to allow children who were born in poverty, and thereby miss out on many, if not all, educational opportunities, improve their lives and thereby help people to help themselves. To do this, it is essential that we provide for them not only an EDUCATION, but also HOPE.
