Who are we?

Empowerment is at the heart of what we do – we unlock potential, foster creativity, and ignite the flame of passion. Through education, inclusivity, and trust, we unlock a world of opportunities for our youth. Together, as a community, we unlock a future filled with self-love, hope, and endless possibilities

Our Story 

This is the story of how HopeReaching United came to be. Rodna always sensed something missing in the traditional school system, lacking support from teachers. Everything turned around when she encountered a mentor who instilled in her self-belief, confidence, and the know-how to achieve her goals. This mentor played a crucial role in her life, motivating Rodna to dedicate herself to being that guiding figure for other young people.

Today, young people face numerous challenges, often being told what they can't do and what's wrong with them. HopeReaching United creates a safe space that believes in young people, allowing them to dream big and realise their potential without limitations based on gender, colour, ethnicity, or socioeconomic background.

Our motto is 'be the change you wish to see in the world.' Co-founders Gideon and Rodna Ntabeni united their talents. Gideon, a cinematographer and creative director, collaborated with Rodna's coaching background and passion for young people, giving rise to HopeReaching United. We share a message of hope with young people, inspiring the belief that there is more for them.
