​​Meet the HOPE Team

From 'Scholars' to Leaders'

We have been lucky to have had great team members from Peru, Canada, Indonesia, France, the USA, and other countries. They have all added something special to HOPE, and many continue to support HOPE. When I started HOPE in 2010, a dream was to have HOPE led by HOPE graduates. I'm delighted to say the HOPE team mainly consists of HOPE Scholarship graduates. As we continue to grow, we will look to add more HOPE graduates to our team and empower them to become more influential leaders of work. If you have any query about the work of HOPE please make contact below.
