Renovation of the Tesfa Ligos Kindergarten

Tesfa Ligos Kindergarten in Kirkos was founded in 2004 through an initiative of community members. The project was implemented by HOPE’87 and Godanaw and construction expenditure was covered by the UNESCO Foundation and HOPE’87 respectively. Despite great efforts of the school administration, local government and non-governmental organisations, the kindergarten has been facing various challenges in addressing the rising demand for quality child education in the area.

Münchner Merkur helps the refugees in Burkina Faso

We thank the readers of the prestigious newspaper Müncher Merkur for their support for the refugees of Camp Damba, Burkina Faso. Thanks to their donations HOPE'87 was able to deliver quick humanitarian assistance: tents, food and hygiene articles were provided to the refugee families in Camp Damba. 

Humanitarian crisis response: Water in Afar

In order to minimize the problems resulting from low water and sanitation coverage, HOPE’87, in cooperation with PADet (Professional Alliance for Development), implemented the “Water in Afar” project in Dulecha and Argoba special districts. The three basic components of the project were water supply, sanitation and hygiene education.

Night School for street children

To keep children safe and reintegrate them into the community HOPE’87 initiated an education programme for underprivileged working and street children. At the beginning 300 street children were selected from Old Dhaka City to attend evening classes in the “Night School”. Most of these children are working in small factories during daytime and are thus not able to attend a regular school. Now they receive a formal primary education in the Night School from 6.00 pm to 8.30 pm, 6 days a week. They are provided with free services like school uniforms, books and other educational materials.
