Founded by biomedical engineering students Tina Hakimi and Neil Saez in January 2011, Camp H.O.P.E. is a nonprofit organization that seeks to forever change the lives of the orphans by opening the door on the way out of the poverty cycle.
After the first summer camp in summer 2011 at the Estado 29 Orphanage near Ensenada, Mexico, it became clear to the team that they had found a successful recipe: mix cutting-edge activities that highlighted different STEM disciplines with a fun summer camp setting. This year, they are working to make that experience accessible to orphans here in the Valley of the Sun.
You can help bring this experience to Arizona children in foster care by participating in the upcoming auction featuring dinner and live entertainment.
Camp H.O.P.E (Helping Orphans Prosper through Education) began with the idea that university students with drive could inspire the same in others, specifically in a group that has few other sources of inspiration: orphans.
