Education at HOPEthiopia is all about child development: academic development, personal development, and character development. Through formal education in a school environment and informal education via mentorship and extra-curricular activities, children will learn important life lessons from their instructors, as well as from one another. Education at HOPEthiopia will help produce people who are model citizens and societal leaders, eager and prepared to contribute to their community and country, and even make a global difference.

Formal academic education will include curriculum traditional to Ethiopian schools as well as unique forms of education to encourage creativity and critical thinking. However, great emphasis will be placed on technical skills through use of onsite computers, thereby expanding the knowledge and the means of communication available to most. Additionally, the English language will be taught to all students as this is the language used most for international trade and communications. Informal education will consist of activities outside of regular curriculum, and will largely incorporate historical Ethiopian traditions. For example, exploration of Ethiopian music, art, and dance will provide academic supplements which are profoundly meaningful.

Also important to the educational aspect of HOPEthiopia are the concepts of d-given passions and identities. . As such, children and instructors alike will be encouraged and assisted in the development of these qualities. Issues such as national history (traditions, arts, language) and family roots will be explored, resulting in a group of people who are aware of happenings in their society, and how they personally fit in.

To further complement HOPEthiopia’s educational provision, resource teachers will be employed to assess individual learning styles and abilities, as well as provide additional assistance to learning disabled or special needs children. These teachers will help provide each child with an optimized learning program.
