The transforming power of education

As we approach Komodo's second anniversary we're very proud to start supporting  Many Hopes - an amazing charity that transforms the lives of street children and orphans in Kenya through education.

After a chance meeting with the founders Thomas and Anthony, we were completely inspired by their ambitious vision and amazing achievements. Our first contribution will educate one child for one year, but we see this as the start of a lasting partnership - as Komodo grows we aspire to do much much more.

Many Hopes is quite unique in its strategy and approach - in their own words:

"We believe that loving and educating a network of children who have endured the worst of poverty and exploitation is the best way to equip them to eliminate the causes of the injustice they and their neighbours have suffered. We believe in tackling the causes of injustice, not just housing the victims of it."

There are a few things we really like about Many Hopes:

  • They're passionate about the transforming power of education - and we are too
  • 100% of donations go into the schools and educational projects
  • Their projects are designed to be sustainable within ten years
  • Their work is not faith based - children come from all religions, Christian, Muslim or none - they can pray and worship as they wish
  • Most importantly they aspire to break the cycle of injustice through education:

"Nobody cares more about justice than those who have suffered injustice. If we equip children who have suffered the worst of exploitation with the education in their heads, the confidence in their bellies and the network at their fingertips to match that desire already in their hearts, they will do work we could never do"

Our donation was match funded by a wealthy American family fund - so this means education for two children for one year! We'll keep you posted with Many Hope's amazing school project from time to time. Thanks for subscribing to Komodo - without your support this wouldn't happen at all!
