School of Hope Foundation Launched 2017!
Founded in 2004, St. Aloysius Gonzaga Secondary School provides an education for 280 high school students from Kibera slum who would otherwise be unable to attend school. St. Al's serves impoverished, academically-motivated students whose lives have been impacted by AIDS, and other vulnerable children from Kibera slum in Nairobi, Kenya.
The school’s motto is “To Learn, To Love and To Serve” based on St. Ignatius Loyola’s saying “in all things, to love and serve.”
School of Hope Foundation was formed in 2017 to provide fundraising and operational support for St. Aloysius.
St. Aloysius Gonzaga Secondary School’s 15th Anniversary!
St. Aloysius Gonzaga just completed its 15th academic year. In January 2004 St. Al’s began its mission by welcoming 56 students, all promising AIDS-affected youth from devastating poverty, who would not be able to access a secondary education without the scholarship we provided. Today we celebrate 600 high school graduates and 300 who have gone on to complete their college studies. For more information see our 15th Anniversary newsletter.
ABOUT THE FOUNDATION
After 14 years of support from the Midwest Province of the Jesuits, School of Hope Foundation was created as a US-based non-profit to provide fundraising and administrative support for St. Aloysius Gonzaga Secondary School.
BE PART OF SOMETHING SPECIAL
Every year St. Aloysius receives visitors from the US to take part in the annual celebration. The experience is one of spiritual and cultural discovery that is enriched with the support of a Jesuit Chaplain. The next pilgrimage will be June 12- 26, 2018.
