2019 Impact Report

“I loved what I learned in Hello Future because it gave me confidence, boldness and self-reliance at an early age.” - Taza, Age 16


Hello Future’s measurement and evaluation metrics were created in partnership with Columbia University’s School of International and Public Affairs. 

To date, our impact includes a 100% program retention rate and an average 91.5% graduation across three classes. Post-session surveys show a 47% increase in positive beliefs about the future, with 50% of the students sharing what they’ve learned with others outside of class. Early results on emotional shifts from despair to hope are also compelling.

Commitment to Where We Work

We create local jobs as part of every session for in-country coordinators, teachers, translators, and teachers’ aides. In addition, the impact of our workshops on refugee teens means that they will be more economically empowered, self-reliant, better educated, feel safer emotionally and physically, and advocate for an open civil society.


Global Impact


Hello Future directly addresses UN Sustainable Development Goals.

Our program is mission-compatible with larger humanitarian agencies, making it a plug-and-play companion to larger overall initiatives.
