Global Hope is the University's international education charity. It gives students and staff an opportunity to act as global citizens by engaging with issues of social justice and participating in projects in countries as diverse as India, Sri Lanka, Uganda and Brazil.
As part of the Service and Leadership Award, there is an opportunity to apply for a place with the award winning overseas charity as one of your placements. You are required to complete the Global Hope Application Form and return it either to the International Hub or via email to the Global Hope team at email@example.com
The charity has strong links with partners such as SOS Children’s Villages UK, the Tibetan community in India, the Sisters of Notre Dame and Missao Ramacrisna, an artists co-operative in Brazil. As Global Hope's service and community work has evolved, it has seen new collaborative projects develop and the University has ever widening links with a variety of organisations and groups. The University is proud of its reputation as a provider of dynamic students and staff for its work with overseas partners.
On a day to day basis, the Global Hope team work to secure projects, to raise funds, to organize travel, to train the students, to induct staff, to ensure health and safety standards have been met and finally to send off (and importantly, receive home) happy and healthy teams. Global Hope is looking forward to continually supporting current partnerships and to expand to meet new challenges with new partners in many new locations.
