In late 1980th, Hope Village Society (HVS) was founded by late English Mr. Richard Hemsely in cooperation with a number of charitable figures in the Egyptian society. Hemsely has worked for 14 yeas as a headmaster of a Cairo-based language school. He has delivered numerous voluntary works that aimed at assisting children in difficult circumstances both in Egypt and in his homeland (England). Besides, he has acted as a voluntary social counselor at Save Our Souls (SOS) Children's Villages. In 1988, he has opened the first center in Nasr City area to provide shelter for 7 orphan children who lacked the parental care.
