We empower young women to become transformational leaders2018-09-06T17:58:32+00:00

The Spark of Hope Foundation empowers bright young women in the Global South, especially in regions that are in turmoil or remote, to become tomorrow’s leaders through providing scholarships for post-secondary education. With university education, each of them will impact thousands of lives as doctors, engineers, journalists, lawyers, managers, scientists, researchers, entrepreneurs and teachers.

We are a North American not-for-profit, registered in Canada and the United States. Our purpose is to empower young women, primarily in the developing world, through providing scholarships for post-secondary education.

We aim to lift such young women, their families and their communities out of the cycle of poverty and despair by igniting a spark of hope. We also believe that empowering young women, especially those from countries in turmoil, strengthens local communities and is key to creating long term transformational change.

Our focus is bright young women, who demonstrate leadership potential, but lack the financial means to afford a quality university-level education.

  • Our emphasis on developing women leaders;

  • our focus on the developing world, especially areas of conflict or those that are under-served;

  • the financial support we leverage from our on-ground partners and university affiliations, generally on a 1:8 ratio;

  • our strong on-ground assistance for selection, screening and supporting students;

  • involvement that begins before university, and continues during and after university;

  • our access to full scholarships at the Bachelor’s, Master’s, professional and Doctorate levels.


Over the next 10 years, we hope to support 1,500 young women leaders achieve university education, at the Bachelor’s, Master’s, Professional and PhD levels. You can help make their dreams come true and create a new generation of female leaders by contributing as little as $1 a day, starting today!
