At this time of year, as we reflect on the ways we each have been blessed even during these challenging days, Giving Tuesday has become a call to action in encouraging us all to support the causes we believe in. Between now and the end of 2021, Friends of Hope Africa University invites you to prayerfully consider a generous gift to support one of HAU's most vital needs -- our student scholarship program. As you celebrate the holidays, please continue to remember our students.  They need your continued support. We are so thankful for the heartfelt generosity of all of those who may not have met our students, yet care for them, and invest in their lives and futures. We thank you and ask God’s blessings on you. 

 

Please take a few minutes to watch the video to see how our scholarship fund is changing lives for Christ in Burundi and beyond!
