HAPPY NEW YEAR!!
We hope you’ve all enjoyed a wonderful Christmas and New Year. We are so excited to jump into 2013, with so many incredible things planned and we hope that you’ll be part of the journey.
REQUEST FOR VOLUNTEERS
What are you doing in 2013?
Why not volunteer and join a short term HOPE: Global Education training team in 2013 to help change the quality of education in developing nations.
67 million children worldwide are missing out on education.
200 million children are currently in school in developing nations but learning very little.
In developing countries the quality of education remains unacceptably low. 50% of Year 2 children in developing countries cannot read anything at all.
If all students in low income countries left school with basic reading skills, 171 million people could be lifted out of poverty. This is equal to a 12% cut in global poverty.
We need teachers but we also need professionals from various sectors.
HOPE: Global is looking for Australian teachers, nurses, administrators, photographers and IT specialists – willing hearts and hands to give 2-3 weeks to build the capacity of schools, orphanages and vocational training centres in Rwanda, Cambodia, Uganda and Kenya.
By training one teacher or worker in a school or orphanage, the quality of education increases and equips hundreds of children.
Uganda – April 13-28
Rwanda – June 22-July 7
Kenya – Sept 14-29
Cambodia – Sept 21-Oct 5

This year, our annual Walk of Hope is going global! Our aim is to walk the circumference of the earth – 40,008km! The Global Walk of Hope will consist of local Sydney events, the Kids Walk of Hope and the Adults Walk of Hope, and our global event, which anyone can take part in from anywhere.
The Global Walk of Hope will kick off on the 16th of February with the Kids Walk of Hope and finish on the 2nd of March with the Adults Walk of Hope.
Registrations are now open for each event and all the details can be found online here.
