HOPE HI after the Marawi City siege of 2917 resulted to a catastrophic loss in the assets of the school. Given this situation, the school translated it as an opportunity to immediately restore, rebuild and operate to be of service to the IDP’s specially the Out of School Youth who are the most vulnerable to illegal activities.  While the war was going on, HOPEHI established a satellite office and step by step reconstructed its school documents, applied more TESDA programs to be offered and mobile trainings, an option after losing the school buildings. Remaining financial resources was utilized to purchase new sets of equipment, tools and materials, support to the teaching staff with TMI training and  assessment to strengthen the institution’s absorptive capacity became its priority. Thus,  on January 2018,  HOPE HI was operational and was the first TVET  school to accept students for Technical Skills training, though the Elementary Department is still to be re-established due to damaged classrooms.
