Help keep Project Hope running!

Project Hope is a project by young people for young people. Started by 21-year old Naomi  just at the start of lockdown, it has since grown substantially, attracting young people from all over the world. The project aims to fight loneliness and isolation during COVID-19 and beyond, giving both the organisers and young participants a sense of belonging and solidarity.  Three times a week the project gets together on Zoom, where they engage in everything from game nights to language lessons and virtual tea breaks. Well-being is also an important topic on the agenda, and anyone joining the sessions is guaranteed to leave with a smile on their face.

Project Hope is currently led by approximately 15 hard-working, young volunteers striving to make a difference. New young people continue to connect with the project on a weekly basis to find an enthusiastic community giving them a warm welcome.

With a Facebook, Twitter and Instagram account (@YLProjectHope), the volunteers reach out to young people on a wide variety of platforms, maximizing their positive impact by spreading messages of hope. 

And now.. they need your help to keep the project and to continue to support more young people to make connections and have fun! 

Some quotes from participants:

"I first found Project Hope through one of my friends' instagram. They told me more about the project and it was certainly a project I wanted to get involved with and to get more active during this pandemic. It has made a huge impact on me as before PH came around I wasn't really going out anywhere during lockdown but now I'm taking my dog out for a walk most days whereas before lockdown I would never do it. So it has made a huge impact for my life."

'The hosts, the hard work, the planning, the commitment. I thank you for making my lockdown easier. For saving my mental health taking a turn, helping me communicate, make new friends and most of all have lots of fun.
I have done over 16 sessions now. 16 sessions that have changed my life each evening that I attended. I felt lonely before and disconnected. I felt sad and lost but since I joined the hosts and young people have helped me feel happier, made memories that are more positive in lockdown, given me a space to have fun, a place of safety, and I have been able to carry on learning new things from languages, the world, the environments and more.
