ABOUT

HOPE Enterprises began in 1971 when Jack and Evangel Smith, who were American missionaries living in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia, opened their home to twenty street children offering them basic needs, schooling, skill training, and love. Upon the Smith's departure from Ethiopia, a group of concerned Ethiopians began running the organization with the continued mission of leading those living on the margins of society towards self-sufficiency.

Today, HOPE Enterprises operates seven elementary schools, two high schools, numerous vocational training programs and a university college. In addition, it provides support to close to 1,500 students attending public schools.

 

A completely Ethiopian NGO, HOPE employs close to 400 people, with continued devotion to serving the marginalized through holistic human development guided by the Ladders of Hope
