Why HOPE was created.
In 2008 I met Marco. Marco, who is the same age as me, had a severe fall several years before we met, which left him paralyzed. Marco wanted to return to school. Funds were sourced from a kind donor to help him finish school.
Due to very few supports for people with disabilities in Peru, I founded HOPE in 2010 to help more people like Marco.
I have had the opportunity to visit our scholars' homes to listen to their stories and build relationships with them. I have heard their educational goals and the impact that HOPE's and your support has had on their lives.
From day one, the goal has always been to connect sponsors with people who want to study but don't have the resources. Relationships have been built between sponsors and scholars at a local and international level.
Today, I ask you to become a sponsor or make a donation to help one of our 150+ scholars.
