Helping make a difference in the world with every contribution

HOPE FOR TOMORROW

The Hope For Tomorrow is ANIDA’s child sponsorship program.

Despite the Sustainable Development Goal to have every child in school and learning by 2030, there are still 260 million children who don't go to primary or secondary school (World Bank, 2020). For many parents around the world, the cost of school fees, textbooks and uniforms prevent them from sending their children to school. Our Hope For Tomorrow Program breaks down these barriers so that children can get the education that they need to achieve their goals and build a prosperous life. To date, the child sponsorship program has educated over 500 children in Ghana and Jamaica.

"I talk to the children, and I encourage them, telling them they shouldn't give up. That ANIDA is there and we are going to help them, we are going to support them!"

WOMEN'S DEVELOPMENT CENTRE

Two-thirds of the worlds’ illiterate adults are women (UNESCO, 2017). The ANIDA Women’s Development Center (WDC) was founded in 2004 to help women reach their full potential. At our WDC, we provide women with the skills and knowledge that they need to enter the workforce and uplift their communities. ANIDA’s School of Continuing Education teaches literacy, numeracy, and computer skills, while the School of Aesthetics teaches students the fundamentals of hair and makeup to become an esthetician. Students from the WDC have gone on to become influential leaders in the community, including policewomen, politicians, teachers, firefighters and more.
