By providing a meal, uniforms and shoes, we’re helping to boost attendance rates. We’ve taken that one step forward by also introducing a yearly attendance prize as well as offering to support those who may be struggling with extra tuition. We are also providing additional assistance to those who are very bright.
Since the charity started, we’ve been generously supported by the Village School in Hampstead, London, who have paid for the children of the village school and the nursery to receive a meal every day. For some, this will be the only meal they have as many of the families are extremely poor.
We’re spending more time and money on refurbishing the old school. We want to make it secure and dry so that we can protect the computers, water filters and even light bulbs from theft.
