A School Like No Other:

This is not a "charity school." We build schools that you would send your children to. By mixing students from extreme poverty with fee-paying students from influential families, groups who would otherwise never meet become a network of adults desiring and able to defeat injustice that charity alone cannot.

HIGHLIGHTS
  • Kenyan and international curriculum
  • Tech-smart classrooms
  • State of the art pedagogy: ethos of problem-solving and understanding concepts and principles
  • Top class physical facilities creating an optimal learning environment
  • 900 students comprising 1/3 children from poverty and 2/3 fee-paying students from privilege to create a motivated justice-minded network of character
  • Not just sustainable, BUT revenue-generating

HIGH IMPACT FOR EVERY DOLLAR:

1 IN 5

In sub-Saharan Africa fewer than 1 in 5 girls attend secondary school

10-20%

An extra year of primary education boosts a girl's eventual wages by 10-20%

171M

If all children in low-income countries left school with even basic reading skills 171 m people could be lifted out of poverty

Cost Per Seat:

U.S. Average (urban): $70k per seat
Many Hopes School: $2,200

Cost Per Square Foot:

U.S. Average (urban): $150-250
Many Hopes School: $16

100%

Of what you raise will go directly to building your classroom.

Previous Breaking Ground Campaigns have:

Built 4 girls' homes for 60 girls
Provided 60K hours of girls' education
Built the first 20 classrooms for this school
Raised funds for 4 boys' homes for 60 boys
(building starting in Dec. 15)

Get Started Building Your Classroom:

Every Classroom costs $12,500 and requires 7,862 bricks. Each built brick costs $1.59. We will report back to you every month with pictures and every 6 months with a video.
