At the CR Hope Foundation, our mission is rooted in the belief that every child deserves the opportunity to reach their full potential.
Our primary goal is to create a lasting, positive impact on the lives of young people by offering children in underprivileged communities access to quality education.
As a crucial component of our mission, we established the Seeds of Light school in Kizimkazi, Zanzibar. This beacon of hope now provides education to 108 children between the ages of 3 and 10 years old. By laying the groundwork for their individual success, we are also paving the way for the future prosperity of their generation and the entire nation.
CR HOPE Foundation’s main purpose is to make a positive impact on youth’s lives by providing children in underserved communities with access to quality education.
As a part of this mission, we built the Seeds of Light school in Kizimkazi, Zanzibar, and are now educating 53 children aged 5-7 years old, laying the foundation not only for their success but also for the generation’s and country’s future.
We strongly believe that together we can do better! Since its very first days, CR HOPE Foundation has been relying on our community’s support, without which none of the things we have done would be possible. A donation of even $1 could make a difference and contribute to building a better future for the children of Zanzibar.
Say About Us
When I came across the CR Hope Foundation, I absolutely fell in love with their initiative. I hopped on a plane and headed to the school where I got to spend time with these little angels. I am now invested in their future development and I look forward to returning and seeing all the progress they are making.
It is not easy to find words to describe what I have experienced while volunteering at Seeds of Light School for the CR Hope Foundation. It’s even harder to find words through the tears of joy that easily flow when reflecting back on my time there. Joining as a Teachers Assistant for Seeds of Light allowed me the opportunity to get in touch with the reality of what it means to take action and do something that can make a real difference.
I spent 4 weeks at the CR Hope Foundation and have really enjoyed every single moment. It has been an incredible experience and I will definitely miss these amazing children, the lovely teachers and beautiful Kizimkazi. The children have taught me more than I could ever hoped for and I'm proud to be part of the CR Hope Foundation. Thank's so much to all the great people who are working so hard, to give the children the education they deserve. Hope to come back in near future!
The kids at The seeds of light School are the happiest little souls who deserve the world & more but in reality they don’t have much at all. Thank you so much to the CR Hope foundation that gave me an opportunity of a lifetime to see in reality just how amazing the work they are doing is. The little kids infectious smiles will stay with me forever & for that I am so grateful ♥️
I want to thank the CR Hope Foundation and especially, Renos Fountoulakis who gave me the opportunity to be part of this mission, which had as a purpose to give the most precious gift. That of love! Unconditional and limitless love.
The Eckart Schwerin - Foundation would like to thank the CR Hope Foundation for the great impressions and the warm dedication. Together for a better education in Tanzania.
Nowadays, it's really hard to find people who are generous and kind. When we met those crazy-and-full-of-joy Greeks with even bigger dreams - it was a such relief because you can get back your faith in people. I hope that they will manage to build a school in Zanzibar as this island deserves it. Fingers crossed!
When i landed in this beautiful piece of heaven called Zanzibar, I knew that my perception on life was to change forever. The day we visited the children, we were welcomed with the most sincere and heartfelt smiles. The children run up to me, wanting nothing more than a hug. I truly felt humanity at that point. However, the part that got to me the most was when they all started singing as we walked into the room. Thank you Renos for making it possible by helping them out with their education and other basic necessities. You are an inspiration and hopefully together we can make a difference.
