Founders of H.O.P.E Now, Inc.



Patricia J Lauritzen had a desire to provide educational opportunities to girls in Africa.  Before Ms. Lauritzen died in 1997 she established a trust account for this purpose.  The net proceeds from this trust were distributed in November 2015 to Helping Other People Excel Now Inc.  HOPE Now, Inc. forwarded this money to LEGVTC to build a dormitory for the girls.
