Blogger training in Baraka

The overall program “Construction of the Cité Baraka” was set up by the YOU Foundation- Education for Children in Need in cooperation with the worldwide construction company ORASCOM. The main objective is to transform “Baraka”, a slum area in the district Liberté  VI in Dakar and home to about 1.600 inhabitants, into a modern quarter with a functioning infrastructure, newly built 210 apartments, a market place, a primary school, a health center and income generating activities. 

Establishing a small temporary health post

Within the frame of the reconstruction of the slum area of Baraka in Dakar’s district Liberté VI, a temporary medical service was established for the 210 households.

HOPE Centre for human development

The project focuses on providing an effective training program for the professional growth of the teachers and enhancing student learning outcomes in public, non-profit and low cost private school sector in Pakistan. The project is co-financed by the Austrian Development Cooperation and forms part of a larger program approach.

Support for technical skills training at a district level

In accordance with its principle mandate to create employment opportunities both in urban and rural areas, HOPE’87 provides technical and financial support to the local community based organisations (CBOs) to conduct skills training and literacy programmes. Training programmes for local youths and children were organised and successful trainees were awarded with attendance certificates. In 7 districts, skills training courses are conducted in cooperation with the local CBOs, where unemployed young men and women have the choice attending certified courses in computer training and tailoring.

Hope for the Ayoreo children of Carmelo Peralta

This project is also located in the Chaco Region in Carmelo Peralta, a distant city in Alto Paraguay, which is part of the Paraguayan Pantanal. The Ayoreo tribe needed a small multifunctional youth centre, a place where young people could meet on a regular basis to pass their time, to read and to exchange information, to plan how to save and to live their cultural heritage and also to get skills training for income generation.

Enabling access to affordable quality education through a centre of excellence for underprivileged/low income groups

The project was successfully completed in December 2012. It was co-funded by TEDDS (Trust for Education and Development of Deserving Students) and through the Pakistan-Italian Debt for Development Swap Agreement (PIDSA). The project was initiated in December 2010 as a two-year-project in which HOPE’87-Pakistan provided monitoring and evaluation services during the project implementation. Moreover, a purpose-built school campus with modern educational tools, equipment, and furniture is now available.

Skills training for self employment STEC

There are two established training centres in Chittagong Hill Tracts (CHT) focusing on skills development of young people in order to create self-employment opportunities. The local partner NGO TOYMU is running these training centres with financial and technical support from HOPE’87. Previously, no such residential and non-residential skills training centres existed in the very remote areas of Chittagong Hill Tracts. Therefore, many young people, particularly girls and adolescents, remained unskilled, neglected, deprived and thus marginalised.

International youth exchange programme-community learning trip to development projects

HOPE'87-Bangladesh arranges youth exchange programmes between Bangladesh and other countries every year in order to promote youth networks, the sharing of experience and the creation of opportunities to acquire practical knowledge on education and youth employment initiatives. In 2013, four exchange programmes were arranged on a reciprocal basis and 48 visitors and young people took part in the programme.
