Teaching children who they are in Christ – Removing barriers to education
African Vision of Hope is having an impact on education by eliminating many of the barriers our students once encountered.
- Training teachers maximizes their ability to help children learn.
- The nutrition program feeds the children who might not otherwise have a meal every day.
- Financial sponsorship has allowed students to have the necessary supplies for school.
- Wells with clean water have saved hours of walking time to get the family’s daily supply of water.
- Safe drinking water, sanitation, and hygiene practice have warded off disease.
- Health clinics provide vitamins and other basic medical needs to keep children and mothers healthy.
- Scholarships for formal education allows students to obtain a college degree
- Including HIV/AIDS curriculum as part of the African Vision of Hope educational system in Africa helps slow the spread of infection
African Vision of Hope Higher Education
Our first African Vision of Hope school opened in 2003. Since then, the small children that sat at our desks have grown into young men and women determined to continue their education and to break the chain of poverty.
From Despair to Hope

Acklass is a living example of success for African Vision of Hope schools.
By the time he entered 3rd grade, he had already lived through the death of his father, then his mother, followed by his grandmother. He had been passed around to extended family members and ended up with the brother of his grandmother, who had no money to pay the required fees for the public schools.
He was overjoyed to have found African Vision of Hope. “I was very happy to start school again because I had stayed at home for many months and I had missed school,” he said. “When I started, I worked very hard in my academic work.”
He has since graduated high school and is now a college student. African Vision of Hope continues to support him as he strives toward a higher education that will allow him to rise out of extreme poverty. “The opportunity to be in school is true God’s grace,” he said. “I am grown up physically, spiritually and mentally. God bless the African Vision Hope Team.”
