Good Hope Boarding School

Good Hope Boarding School Classroom Good Hope School Building



Many students from remote areas finish primary school (grades 1-5) and while some go on to middle school (grades 6-9) there are very few high schools (grade 10-11) in rural areas so they are unable to complete their education. We run a boarding school for 64 high school students. We employ 2 full time mentors/teachers and 7 part-time teachers who give tuition after school and at weekends (all the students are enrolled at a nearby state high school). Each student’s family is asked to contribute £3 a month (where possible) towards their food and expenses. We also assist with travel expenses so that they can return to their village one weekend a month.

Z.O. School building Students at Z.O.














400 girls live here - many of them are orphans and others are from very poor, mainly one-parent families who are unable to support them. The orphanage is run by a small group of dedicated Buddhist nuns who also oversee the school which teaches over 1000 local children. We pay the wages for 10 teachers and help towards food costs. In the past few years we have helped fund the expansion of the school which now gives education up to high school level.

The Starfish Centre for Disabled Children was opened in 2010. Currently, there are about 100 children registered. Every day classes are held for children with various physical and mental disabilities such as Down’s syndrome and autism. The children are taught by 7 trained special needs teachers. The number of children attending is growing constantly with referrals coming from hospitals, schools, community centres and the Department Of Social Welfare. We sent one of our teachers for a years specialist training at the Mary Chapman School for deaf children and we now have three deaf students.
