Welcome to HOPE, the official website of the Hospital Organisation of Pedagogues in Europe

HOPE is an association of European hospital teachers who work in Hospital
and at home with children with special health care needs.

Through school and education activities we try to provide every learner with a positive environment
and with the chance to carry on their education, no matter what the illness is.

You can find out about our organisation in “Who We Are“,
check what we have achieved (achieved works) in the “What We Have Done” section or
view existing projects in the “Current Information” section.

To contact us or to join the HOPE association view the “Contact Us” menu.

In our work as hospital teachers we follow the principles of our HOPE charter.

Thank you for your interest in HOPE
