Education Centres & Education Trust Fund
A vision for every Hope Spot is that, in time, it will have a Sustainable Education and Skills Centre for Employment (SEAS Centres for Employment), which are totally green buildings in which top class education and training takes place for all, but particularly underprivileged children. Part of the package in developing the Hope Spots is to launch an Educational Trust in December 2014. The success of Hope Spots depends upon them reaching all stakeholders and helping them to understand their environment, take a pride in their Hope Spot and assume an ownership, especially of their own positive actions.
The education trusts are especially important in helping impoverished coastal communities as they will help alleviate poverty, promote food security and sustainability through education of coastal communities as well as finding alternative skills and developing sustainable livelihoods.
