It will mean that we can continue to provide a free, high-quality education for our pupils, not just to the end of their primary school, but right through secondary education – giving them a very high chance of finding a good job. Remember, these children are some of the poorest in the slum and would previously have had no education at all; which most likely would have resulted in a terrible future of utter poverty… crime, disease, rubbish-scavenging and prostitution.
So we’re working hard to raise £102,550 that will allow us to build a brand-new nursery/primary school close by and then convert our current primary school premises into a secondary school. Construction will start by January 2019 and the schools will open in January 2020!
So, please can you help us? We have already received £73,270 in gifts and pledges – around 71% of the target – so we’re well on our way!
