The Yellow Boat of Hope Foundation provides yellow school boats and other modes of transport and structures (such as bridges, schools, dormitories, etc.) to help children get to school, primarily because they are struggling through water and over large expanses of land to get to school.
Our role is to help bridge the existing gap between poverty and education, and fill it with hope. Education is hope. Education is their way out of poverty.
“The great thing a little lamp can do which the big sun cannot do is to give light at night. It shows no one is superior by size but by purpose. If we cannot do great things, we can do small things in a great way. Little things make a big difference to God.”

To support the families and communities where we operate so that they may find the means to continue to support sending their children to school.
