Why does HOOP exist? Sure, it’s about improving education. Yes, we want to help our students and families create better lives for themselves. And yes, we absolutely want this generation to be the last to ever experience poverty in Flora Tristán. But what HOOP is really all about, is happiness.
All over the world, millions of people are working hard and giving their time for others – for free! Why? Well, they’re probably passionate about helping others, and they probably want to make a meaningful contribution to their community. But really, beneath these virtuous and benevolent motives, is a very simple equation: VOLUNTEERING = HAPPINESS.
