Bright Hope supports education through the local, in-country church in areas such as tutoring, after-school programs, partial scholarships for primary and secondary school, and materials and infrastructure for schools. For adults, Bright Hope offers partial scholarships for vocational schools in order to give them the opportunity to advance their careers and move out of extreme poverty.
