Lasting change in Zambia must come from within. We want our students to graduate with the skills needed to contribute spiritually, economically, and politically to the future of their country. Haven of Hope is committed to a threefold goal: (1) providing an excellent Christian education for the children of Zambia; (2) providing professional development for teachers; and (3) teaching students the importance of giving back to the community.
Zambian and American educators have worked together to develop a comprehensive curriculum that meets the needs of our students and draws upon current research on effective instruction. Spiritual development is an integral part of that curriculum. We facilitate training for the teachers at the Haven of Hope schools, and other instructors in their communities, in person and through distance technologies.
Haven of Hope follows a "hand up" philosophy; we believe that lasting change in Zambia must start from within. Our students learn to give back to their communities through regular service projects. And they learn how to work together toward common goals through team-building activities such as field days and soccer tournaments.
