HOP Centre

The HOP (House of Peace) Foundation was established in 2018, in Kobrin Belarus, as a successor to the Gichon Foundation. After the proverbial key transfer from Gichon founder Erik Jager to the new social driver Peter Yurasevich, the HOP has continued to flourish.

Twice a week, about 50 children come to a warm and safe place to eat, do homework, play and develop creatively.

With this initiative, HOP offers great opportunities to people in need and children who find themselves in a dangerous social situation.

With access to the right resources, children can be empowered by their own abilities and given the confidence to reach their potential.

For whom

Alcoholism is one of the biggest problems in Belarus. Alcoholism carries violence, immoral behavior, addiction and poverty in the families. We help those children in families who no longer have hope for the future.

Our mission

Our goal is to provide a safe and warm place for children to have a hot meal, do homework and develop talents. That's why building at the HOP center. Every child, regardless of their past, needs to know that there is hope!

What we do

We help our children with their homework and make sure they get healthy meals. Their talents are developed through dance, singing and drawing. All this in a warm and loving environment.
