In 2000 The Dream Was Launched
- A university for students from Central African countries.
- An open door for bright students without financial backing.
- An opportunity for youth otherwise blocked from further education by war, crime and famine.
The Dream As A Reality!
Hope Africa is located in Bujumbura, Burundi, and is now a nationally accredited University with more than 2,000 students from six central African countries: Burundi, Democratic Republic of Congo, Rwanda, Kenya,Tanzania and Uganda.Its Board of Governance has members from five of the six countries.
One year’s tuition, room and board is $1,250 for a Burundi student, $1,500 for an out-of-country student, and $3,000 for a medical student. Most students are supported by scholarships.
It’s true! In a struggling part of Africa, Hope Africa University is thriving!
The Kline One Foundation has designated ongoing support for the HAU Dake Memorial Library, the academic heart of the University.
Example of Early Start
A collaborative project to support what is now the Vivian A. Dake Memorial Library at Hope Africa University in Bujumbura, Burundi, was successful during that time period. The project informed descendants of Vivian A. Dake, and received funds from them to provide a naming gift for the library.
Vivian A. Dake, the missionary-evangelist grandfather of the Carrie Dake Kline and Marie Dake Fink families died in 1892 and was buried in an unmarked grave in western Africa. No known memorial had ever been created to honor and make known facts about his life and work. The Hope Africa University Dake Memorial Library project serves that purpose and remains viable today as gifts for its ongoing service continue to be received.
