The little girl's name reflects the vision for education. Great story.

You have highlighted a very important reality for so many African people: the terrible twin scourge of poverty and illiteracy. Sponsership schemes are literally a life line for some of the poorest.
I am going to be nit picky here, and this has nothing to do with the theme of your story, but sitting in metal shacks under the African sun feels pretty much like sitting in an oven!!
The story was told with all the tenderness it deserves. Well done.

This was a hearwarming story, finding hope among the hopeless always blesses me. Good writing, too!
The name of Hope is great foreshadowing. Well written!
Divine encounters! I love them! Hope has hope.

Wonderful title - it has a double-meaning for me, and for little Hope, too. I really like your story!
