Educate, Encourage and  Empower

One of the main objectives of Fountain of Hope is to support the education of women and children survivors of war. Thousands of children in Dzaleka refugee camp cannot attend school because of a lack of funds or a lack of space in the limited schools nearby. Fountain of Hope runs a preschool and primary school in Dzaleka, which currently hosts 500 children from both the refugee and host communities. In the near future, they will be constructing larger facilities to educate even more children.

Fountain of Hope also provides scholarships to enable teen mothers who are survivors of sexual abuse or have been orphaned to attend secondary school. Not only does this empower the teen mother, but it gives hope for a brighter future for her child. Thus far, 40 teen mothers have received secondary school scholarships, 11 of which have already graduated.
