ESPOIR is a non-profit organization which provides free education to underprivileged children in the Philippines.

The first school is located on Siargao Island. The site is on a Gawad Kalinga (GK) resettlement area, whose community members were identified as landless persons living in danger zones who had little to no means to sustain themselves.  

Espoir, “hope” in French, means hope for the children, hope for their families, and hope for their generations to come. Hope starts with the children, with the right education.

“The classroom will be a place of wisdom & happiness,

rather than one of stress and frustration” Nancy Atwell
