Hoopers Africa Trust

Hoopers Africa Trust (HAT) is a charity founded by wildlife photographer Roger Hooper in 2007.

Hoopers Africa Trust sets out to bring hope to some of the most neglected and disadvantaged young women in Kenya.

Most children in Kenya find it very hard to get a complete education and for the potential beneficiaries of HAT it is even more difficult, as they are selected due to having been orphaned, coming from single-parent families, living with disabled parents or living in extreme poverty.
The number of orphans in Kenya has risen rapidly in recent years, often as a result of HIV/AIDS. When children are orphaned, they will usually go to live with relatives or neighbours. This places an extra financial strain on these households, who may face real hardship and find it impossible to fund education for all the children in their care.
Young girls in rural areas have little opportunity for secondary education, university would be just a dream. Strong cultural influences mean that girls are held in low esteem, they may be forced into early marriage and subjected to female genital mutilation (FGM). 
Hoopers Africa Trust aims to bring hope to some of the most vulnerable of these young women. HAT’s vision is to see these girls fulfill their individual potential and give back to their communities and the wider society of Kenya. HAT’s motto is ‘Tumaini la Baadaye’ which means “Hope for the future”.
To date HAT has funded more than one hundred and fifty girls through secondary education and more than twenty girls have gone on to complete university education.
