PMI Home of Hope - Social Impact Project
In May 2020 PMI South Africa Chapter adopted Home of Hope for Girls as our social impact project going forward
(Go to www.hopehome.org.za for more information).
The home is a shelter for 78 girls from the age of 5 years old through to adulthood, and provides support to those who have
lost parents, suffered abuse and been victims of child trafficking. The girls are assisted with education from primary school level
through to tertiary level.
PMI South Africa Chapter has chosen this home to give back to our local community and in support of the United Nations 17

Reading will expand their vocabulary and allow them to have better writing skills and improve their memory while expanding their
