Hope for Children’s Youth Enrichment Centre is a safe and fun place for innovative learning and extra-curricular activities for children in our programs and the broader community.
Hope for Children’s Youth Enrichment Centre in Addis Ababa is a space for sponsored older children and young people in the broader community to access extra-curricular training and post-school support.
The centre provides lessons in English, Information Technology, Mathematics, Physics and Art. Children have access to Library Services and Pastoral Care and take part in extra-curricular activities, supporting senior students through their crucial final years of high school, and into university or vocational training.
Each year, Hope for Children provides 70 tertiary scholarships through the Youth Enrichment Centre to outstanding senior students who lack the funds to pursue further training or go on to university.
