Project Hope kicked off a program to help local students earn scholarship money while learning to give back. It started around 4:00 p.m. at Cherry Berry in Owasso.
Project Hope Worldwide is a local non-profit, based in Owasso that has projects in Uganda, Mexico, Nicaragua, and Bangladesh. They provide holistic care to the most vulnerable children in the world.
Sunday, they launched their Second Annual Orphan Ambassador Program. This program helps motivate students 5th grade to high school to get involved with Project Hope by sponsoring a child and helping raise money for their orphan as well as promoting the charity. In addition, the students can earn scholarship money.
This program was made possible through sponsorships and creative fundraising. In its first year, eleven kids participated in the Orphan Ambassador Program and collectively raised $7,000.
Project Hope Worldwide awarded a total of $1,100 in scholarships to the top ambassadors. The 2014-2015 program will launch this August.
