About Us

Our Mission…

Reason2Hope empowers African children in rural Gambia by creating lasting relationships, sustainable change and increased opportunity through education.

Our Work…

Education is hope. Education is power. Education changes lives.

But for the West African children of Burong, Gambia, obtaining an education is not easy. In one of the poorest countries in the world, there are countless obstacles. A few stand out:

Basic survival is hard.
Many families need their children to work in the fields and at home.

Traveling takes time and is risky.
Children walk desolate, rural roads – sometimes alone – to reach school.

Food is scarce.
Most families cannot provide a nourishing mid-day school meal for their children.

School costs too much.
Impoverished families cannot afford required fees, uniforms, textbooks and supplies.

A Reason to Hope…

True, there are obstacles – but thankfully, there also is reason to hope. And now, in Burong, Gambia, there is Reason2Hope (R2H). A registered 501(c)(3), our scope is defined by one basic question: How can we help Gambian children attend school?

Sometimes the answer is relatively simple. And sometimes, it is not.

As an organization, R2H looks for solutions that:

  • Remove obstacles, both direct and indirect, to education
  • Consider the community as a whole, as well as the individuals in it
  • Strengthen relationships and increase collaboration
  • Focus on local sustainability
  • Make a lasting impact on children and their families

Making a Difference…

Thanks to the generosity of people like you, Reason2Hope has undertaken initiatives like these:

Providing school fees, uniforms, textbooks and supplies.

Planting a school garden.

Providing a Daily Lunch.

One day at a time, one child at a time, Reason2Hope is making progress – and it’s just the beginning. The need is clear. The time is now. Will you join us?  Together we can change a child’s life – and a community’s future.
