In the eyes of the children shines the promise of a peaceful future

Welcome to the Escola da Esperança project


The Children and young people are the carriers and designers of the future of this planet. Each child carries within itself a direct, authentic peace power. The main goal of the Escola da Esperança – the School of Hope – is to nurture this peace power.

Our Future
