Schools for Hope aims to create a one-to-one connection and a cultural exchange between classrooms in the United States and families in Uganda's Acholi Quarter. Classes or student groups in the U.S. have the opportunity to select a family to adopt by viewing videos and family profiles.
The students will help to raise money to improve the family’s basic living conditions, build them a home, and help the family become financially stable through vocational training and business start-up initiatives. The students will be able to maintain an email exchange and through letters and photos will learn more about their adopted family.
