ABOUT US > WHO WE ARE
Hope One World (HOW) provides educational workshops, training and support for communities around the world. We are innovative in the way we use human resources from higher education and schools in the UK to aid the development of our partners overseas.
HOW operates as an independent charity from its base near Liverpool UK and is sustained through its own fundraising activities, donations made through the Charities Trust, and payroll-giving schemes which enable tax-free donations to be made.
For two decades now, teams of university tutors, school teachers and students have travelled to settlements in a growing list of countries. When they get there the tutors work with teachers in the schools and the students teach the children either in their schools or in their villages.
No other UK higher education group in the country approaches help for communities
elsewhere in the world in this way. HOW is already looking beyond this for other ways to support long-term teaching and learning experiences.
HOW projects are located right across India, in both Indian and Tibetan communities, as well as in Sri Lanka, Nigeria, Malawi, Uganda, South Africa and Brazil. Most of these are linked to our association with SOS Children’s Villages, the inspirational UK arm of SOS Kinderdorf International, one of the world’s largest charities caring for orphaned and dispossessed children.
HOW is proud of its partnership with SOS Children’s Villages which has done so much to help us turn our hopes and dreams into reality.
