Our Mission at Ocean of Hope Foundation
The Ocean of Hope Foundation is dedicated to restoring a healthy ocean through the creation of an entire generation of ocean stewards.
In the end we will conserve only what we love; we will love only what we understand;
and we will understand only what we are taught. ~ Baba Dioum
Education is the most powerful weapon you can use to change the world. ~ Nelson Mandela
The Ocean of Hope Foundation is the first massive scale, grass roots organization that works directly with volunteer teams to effect ocean conservation through education. Our actions create results both today and far in the future.
By extensively using volunteerism and having no marketing overhead, we break the mold of the traditional non-profit and put funds to use where they make the most difference. Donors can choose how they want to make a difference by selecting which project their funds go to and seeing the direct results.
The Overseas Classroom Project is expanding and OHF is now working with three community schools in Fiji and Indonesia. We are identifying and funding educational infrastructure (generator, scholastic books, teachers salaries) to create an effective learning environment. Then, we are introducing and supplying Project AWARE Kids booklets – 400 in the first delivery. This is the primary educational tool for Ocean conservation we are using overseas. The response has been overwhelmingly positive from the community schools.
The 10,000 Classroom Project has passed through its pilot stage with great success and is now in progress. We are continuing to gather resources, schedule with teachers and plan logistics for this project as we visit more classrooms around the world.
