A Message to Pilgrims of the Holy Land
You are invited to visit Hope School on your pilgrimage to the Holy Land. Our school is located four kilometers away from the Nativity Church in Bethlehem, where one can walk around and imagine what life was like in the days that Jesus himself walked here.
Hope School is a Christian-based organization that takes care of needy and destitute children. At our school you can feel the grace, love and Spirit of God working among children. We provide faith-based education and a second chance to children who have struggled in previous schools. Each day begins with a chapel service, and all students are encouraged to live by the values of honesty, kindness, and faithfulness.
What began as a secondary school for boys now includes girls, as well as a newly added elementary section that is based on modern teaching principles. Our twelfth grade faces rigorous state exams at the end of the school year, and depending on their outcome, will have the opportunity to attend a university. We also have a boarding section which provides a home-like place for children who cannot live at home due to difficult family situations.
We are striving to make Hope School a beacon of hope for those children who would otherwise be left behind. We have many stories of children who have come to our school as a last resort, graduated and have created a successful life for themselves and their families. During your visit, you can support the school by browsing our gift-shop which includes handmade olive wood crafts and other locally-made products, part of which are produced at the school workshop. All visitors can enjoy 40% discount of the prices.
Blessings to all of you who have so faithfully supported us and our mission. We would love to have you come and visit us.
