We are committed to developing supportive partnerships with small, locally-led but under-resourced education projects, in which we can see the potential to develop sustainable free schools for the children we wish to help. We believe that where such projects spring from a locally perceived need, and are led from within the local community, to serve the local community, then they are much more likely to succeed, to thrive and to endure.
Having identified these projects personally, by visiting them at work in their communities, we build close personal relationships and strong working partnerships in order to provide:
School premises, teachers, uniforms, books, writing materials, teaching resources, school meals, pre-school health checks, glasses and other aids, all free of charge.
Sponsorship for our pupils to transfer to mainstream schools when they are ready, thereby gaining access to a broad and balanced curriculum and nationally recognised qualifications.
Vocational training programmes in partnership with local employers and craftsmen, teaching the skills required to gain employment, fulfilment and a brighter future.
Part-time classes offering education to those children who are unable to attend full-time school due to their need to work to earn money for themselves and their families.
