Hope for the Ayoreo children of Carmelo Peralta

This project was 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, 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.

Phase II involved the construction of four additional classrooms and the equipment of the computer room. HOPE'87-Senegal, in partnership with teachers, parents and the Inspectorate of Education and Training, continues to monitor educational activities and is raising awareness about the importance of sending children, especially girls, to school.

“Revenire în forţă”: Workshop on job orientation and career guidance in Austria and the Republic of Moldova

The rising demand for a young and well-educated workforce, in particular skilled workers and craftsmen, combined with a high rate of youth unemployment often due to insufficient training and education, have made it necessary to rethink the current educational and vocational training system of the Republic of Moldova. In order to address the tense socio-economic situation in the country, Moldova is making efforts to modernise the sector concerning vocational training and the school-to-job transition process.

Alphabetization and bilingual education for young people without access to regular education

With the support of the Austrian association “Barmherzigkeit e.V.” two projects were financed in the rural communities of Tanghin Dassouri and Komki-Ipala.

The alphabetisation project allowed 240 persons, including 180 young women and 60 young men, to receive training in reading, writing and basic management techniques. They also received simplified tools in the local language, such as agricultural production and planning charts, account books and balance and inventory sheet.

Nutrition education for young women

The association Barmherzigkeit International has been contributing for years in supporting HOPE'87 activities in Burkina Faso. Past interventions have efficiently supported the education of children from rural areas in Burkina Faso. The projects have focussed on the thematic areas of alphabetisation and bilingual education (French and one of the local national languages). Since the beginning of 2015, Barmherzigkeit International's contribution has been dedicated to nutrition education of mothers of children aged 6-23 months in the Komsilga community.
