Hope Training Institute was established in March 2005 to provide employable vocational skills for street children. The Institute so far, has provided livelihood for more than 150 people since it’s establishment. This program has evolved since its beginning in 1999. Initially, the goal was to provide a meal a week to 40 street children. Soon the number of meals and the number of beneficiaries multiplied and meals were provided four times a week to over 80 street children – both boys and girls.
Hope College promises to be a community of faith that will nurture each student in love and discipline; inculcate in each student Christ-like character, rigorous scholarship, selfless servanthood and servant leadership; equip each student to triumphantly face the realities of life and transform each student to change the world for the better.
Formal education is essential to the development of our children and that is what gave birth to Hope Christian Academy in 2002. All the children in the orphanage who are in Nursery, Primary and Junior High schools receive their education at Hope Christian Academy on the Fetteh campus. The schools are also open to the general public and currently have students attending from fourteen neighboring communities as well as other parts of the country.
In September 2008, when Village of Hope took over the running of Church of Christ School at Nkwatia, we inherited a seven-classroom building and a school whose highest class was Primary Five. It was a young school in comparison with Hope Christian Academy in Fetteh and we had great plans to make it an icon on the highlands of Ghana.
