HOW DID MOZART DISCOVER HIS GIFT? HE HAD A HARPSICHORD IN FRONT OF HIM.
PROJECT: WORLD HOPE ACADEMY
Partner: World Hope
We believe that locked up in every person, there lies God-given potential for greatness. This project gives us the chance to unlock that potential for generations to come.
In 2000, World Hope began building on an 8-acre piece of land in the middle of the Kawangware Slum, an area that was essentially a garbage dump and where the poorest of the poor lived.
In 2011, the Premier Foundation was blessed to travel to Nairobi for the dedication of the Hope Academy High School, built with nearly $250,000 that the Foundation helped to raise. In 2014, we celebrated with the Academy’s first graduating class. At that point, we began planning “what’s next,” and that’s where the idea of the music program came to life.

PAST, PRESENT AND FUTURE
Hope Center rose from the ruins followed by Hope Church and then Hope Academy, educating and feeding over 500 children daily. The area soon became a beacon of hope throughout the region. World Hope gives the hope and love of Christ to the hopeless, not only offering spiritual hope but meeting their needs emotionally, physically, mentally and spiritually.
The evolution of this extraordinary project continues. Now we’re cultivating resources to fund teachers, instruments and more in the months and years ahead.
