The Board

The school is overseen and governed by a school board which provides accountability and vision for the school.  Presently AHLC has representatives (including a non-voting staff representative) who meet monthly and, as required, for special events and sub- committees.  

The Board of AHLC consists of the following members:

Lesley Richardson as our Board Chair.

Chris Rupke is our Volunteer C.E.O. and board member.   He joined AHLC in November 2015.

Please contact Chris Rupke or Lesley Richardson by email for any inquiries about the governance of African Hope Learning Centre.

The current board wishes to thank our previous board members who have worked so hard behind the scenes to build up the school to what it is today. We couldn’t have done it without all of you!


In 2021 we celebrate 23 years of providing a place of learning for African refugees in Cairo, EGYPT!
