The HOPE Classroom

We believe every Filipino child deserves a safe and comfortable environment where they can grow and learn the skills crucial for a promising future. We work closely with the Department of Education to identify schools with classroom shortages and to ensure that our classroom construction follows the department’s building specifications.

WHAT’S INSIDE?

A chalkboard, teacher’s table and wall fans are included in every HOPE build.

A STABLE STRUCTURE

Each 7m x 9m classroom is designed to withstand the harsh weather conditions in the areas we build.

ATTENTION TO DETAIL

We use a cathedral style ceiling and provide bigger windows for better ventilation.

HYGIENE MATTERS

Every HOPE classroom has its own lavatory to promote proper hygiene amongst the students.

THANK YOU WALL

A wall outside each classroom is dedicated to our partners who help make our builds possible.

Classroom Build Promise

We work closely with our partners and oversee classroom construction from start to finish for transparency, accountability, and efficiency.

Open Bidding

We conduct open bidding to provide the best value to each location and share the results for public transparency.

Regular Audits

We provide regular, comprehensive build reports to partners and the public to ensure accountability and quality.

Skills transfer & Livelihood

We work with partners to employ builders from the local community, not only to provide livelihood but to upskill the area’s growth.

Drink HOPE,

Our flagship products, Hope in a Bottle and Hope in a Box, are purified bottled water products available in thousands of retailers nationwide. It is the first brand in the Philippines to donate 100% of its profits to the building of public school classrooms.
