PROGRAMS

Classroom of Hope (COH) is an organisation that provides access to quality education. It’s important for us to explain that our education programs of Child-Friendly Schools, Building Schools, and Scholarships are implemented by our inspiring best-practice local NGO partners in each country. COH undertakes very strict due diligence when finding the right local partners to ensure specific criteria are met before partnerships are formed.

Each country has specific barriers to education that require unique solutions when it comes to development. Our ‘smartnerships’ model is primarily about finding the right local NGO partners. We listen to our partners to understand what the in-country problems are and how they intend to solve these problems with country determined solutions to create sustainability. COH supports our NGO partners by funding education projects with solutions that empower the local communities to create change.
