How we do it
Our approach is simple...
We provide educational support into day or boarding schools for those who are eager for and have the capacity to engage/re-engage in school. Day and boarding school provides a secure and safe learning environment, encourages social integration and builds essential networks for the future.
Funding for school education is through individual sponsors who provide multi-year funding for a specific child with whom they develop a one to one relationship. These are highly motivating relationships; for the child they build self-esteem and provide encouragement, while the sponsors follow the transformational journey of their child which they find inspiring.
From general donations we provide literacy classes for older students who are unable to go back to school either having spent too long on the streets or because of their age.
Post school we provide scholarships for professional and vocational education and career counselling.
We are working together with our new partner organisation Shule Foundation who works with the most at-risk children in Kisenyi area. They conduct outreaches, run a drop-in center, a transitional home and a family reconciliation to some of the country's most disregarded children.
