Situation

Youngsters from backgrounds of poverty being denied an education and opportunity in life.

Solution

Each residential project has a strong community spirit, where the prime criteria for admission is poverty. The quality of schooling is constantly monitored and there is opportunity for further development through sports, music and other activities. Youngsters will gain recognised qualifications whilst acquiring skills that will enable them to lift themselves and their families out of relative poverty.
