Hope Children's Centre is a local, community initiated educational institute that offers formal and vocational education to mainly the less privileged children, with most emphasis on orphans.
With funding from Just a Drop, children can now get safe water from a protected water source – in addition to behavior changes in hygiene and sanitation at the centre, which was in rampant before this water facility.
