2018-2019 HIGHLIGHTS






In collaboration with our local NGO partner, Child's Dream, we expanded our building schools program to Laos and Myanmar. With these new country additions, we now have our building schools program in 5 countries which also includes Cambodia, Indonesia and Rwanda.

We formed a new partnership with Pelita Foundation Lombok in response to the earthquake disasters in Lombok, Indonesia where we have built 87 classrooms and helped nearly 2379 students get back to school as part of our temporary pop up schools' program.

Project Lombok became a Classroom of Hope record breaking campaign raising over $120,000 to fund pop up schools in Lombok, Indonesia. In collaboration with several social media influencers, we were able to spread the word about Lombok and use social media for good. Read more about it on page 17.

We doubled our revenue from last year. This significant increase was thanks to the development of new funding partnerships and fundraising campaigns and also thanks to our ongoing and growing contributions from individual supporters.

In terms of impact, we reached some milestone numbers this year. In June we developed our 50th school and also we reached over 15000 students supported since Classroom of Hope began in 2012.

Our Classroom of Hope family grew this year. We hired new team members and recruited two new board directors to help build further capacity within the organisation.
