Hope Academy is a work of Fr Anthony Young msc that uses web-based learning and internet technology to provide training programs to students in remote parts of South-East Papua New Guinea around Alotau and Milne Bay.

Since opening the Academy has faced severe damage from Cyclone Ita in 2014 that destroyed much of the network infrastructure, which needed replacement, and an attack by Rascals on the main training centre in late 2015 that meant the centre had to be moved, rebuilt and equipped in a new location.

Despite these setbacks the Hope Academy continues to provide much needed training to people in remote areas who would not otherwise have this opportunity.

With the support of our donors the MSC Mission Office has been able to contribute to this work.

Fr Young has sent some photo's of the construction of the new facilities with thanks to our donors.
