Situation

Our pupils endure daily hardships rooted in poverty, such as illness and unreliable access to food or clean water. Education is one route out of poverty, with English Alive having small classes and a free or subsidized education for all. But with renting a building, we are constricted with class size and facilities as well as long term stability.

Solution

To secure a complete education for as many pupils as possible and thus provide them with the best chance to break the cycle of poverty they are born into, our own purpose built school is required which will enable us to extend through additional classes as and when is needed as well as having large communal areas such as a school hall / gymnasium.
