The Jackson Foundation grant currently funds the development of our new leadership curriculum. Dedicated funds will also provide mentoring and leadership development training and support for students and staff, as well as the essential materials and resources needed to support leadership development in the 21st century. Light of Hope just began it’s third grant for the Stepping Stones Leadership Development Program, and will work over the next two years integrate the program into the Home and School’s curriculum. The goal is to empower our staff and girls to recognize their identity and become leaders in their community.
Margaret A Cargill Foundation
Without privacy and security our girls would be unsafe. This MAC Foundation grant not only funded the construction of our security wall, but the installation of solar security lighting, as well. In Kenya, power surges and blackouts are common. The installation of solar lighting ensures our grounds will always be well-lit at night.
Carlson Family Foundation
Access to a safe, reliable water source is critical to ensuring the health of our girls, irrigating our organic gardens, and watering our livestock. Carlson Family Foundation made our water well possible through a grant award.
Mound Westonka Rotary
The Rotary, through its international organization, provided matching funds to help us complete the well project.
Wayzata Community Church
Each year, we require funds to pay our teachers, maintain our facilities, and provide our girls with the things they need to succeed: food, clothing, medical care, and school supplies. Year after year, Wayazata Community Church has granted funds to meet those needs.
