Our Mission

Our charity is a collective of amazing people striving to build a better future for children

Hope Meets Art is an action of Notre Dame de France, which means we are part of Notre Dame de France Charity.

Hope Meets Art was founded in 2011. Its purpose was, and still is, to raise funds to support two main projects in Dakar, Senegal:

  • Social and family reintegration for street children,
  • Providing girls with life-saving education including learning how to write and read/sewing and cooking skills.
To fulfil our purpose, our charity decided to involve children from more affluent countries, mostly from Europe, in order to open their hearts to the lives of less favoured children elsewhere in the world. They would contribute to the fund raising and possibly gain, based on their achievements, a Duke of Edinburgh’s Award.

Our Action

Until now, we have created unique fashion collections for children, and we have auctioned them off during catwalks

Our name, Hope Meets Art, comes from our purpose of using Art, mainly though bespoke fashion collections for children, to raise funds for other children. All our collections were unique, designed and created especially for Hope Meets Art.
