Village of Hope

The Village of Hope program is a unique learning experience that teachers and students take together to understand through real world situations the issues facing some of the world’s most vulnerable: children.

Through 5 lesson plans students will explore the following topics and how they can help lift children and their families out of poverty: education; water; health; food security and livelihood; and, child protection. Each lesson plan will directly relate to the grade 6 curriculum, including math, geography, language and social studies and can be easily adapted for grades 4 through 7.

Students will discover how to affect positive social change, and act on what they have learned by hosting fundraisers for their Village of Hope. Funds raised will contribute to Plan International Canada’s community sponsorship program.

Seasonal updates on the Village will allow classrooms to see how their actions are directly affecting positive change. Through individual stories, students will learn the unique challenges that face children in developing countries and how we are working together, to build more resilient communities!

The Village of Hope program will encourage your students to become active, engaged global citizens! Find out how Plan International Canada is working to create a brighter future for children everywhere! For more information, contact getinvolved@plancanada.ca.
