Hope of Africa is pleased to introduce you to our 2017 Gap Year students.
In South Africa, this is our 4th year running a gap year program, giving students a year between secondary and tertiary education to focus on spiritual development, leadership development, life-skills, computer skills, community service and academic preparation for college/university.
In Uganda, this is our first/pilot gap year program. They are learning spiritual development, leadership development, life-skills, computer skills, community service and business/entrepreneurship skills in preparation for starting a small business to support their families.
We are so excited for the opportunities these young students will have this year and are blessed by their enthusiasm and willingness to learn. We even had the opportunity to send of last year’s South African gap year students to Uganda to participate and help with the new program there. He is learning much from the different culture and is excited to bring back to South Africa what he is learning from this unique experience.
If you would like to know more about our gap year programs or are interested in financially supporting either of these programs (one time gift or monthly donations), please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
