Developing Skills, Changing Lives

Skills for Hope Foundation is a Canadian registered charitable foundation based in Vancouver, BC.


We began our journey in 2012 and have continued to serve people in need locally and internationally.


We reached a major milestone in early 2016 when we were registered as a charitable foundation.


From 2017, we expanded our Scholarships program and Canadian Programs in honour of Canada’s 150th anniversary of our Confederation.


In 2020, we started our Remote Internship Program in response to the COVID-19 pandemic.
