"There is no better gift to give a refugee than education."
"I have walked 100 miles to get to safety. I have no food or clothes, but I have brought my school book."
Eastern Africa is host to over 20 million people affected by conflict,internally displaced in their countries or living as refugees in a neighbouring country. These are the most marginalised with grossly inadequate access to education, training, health care and the means to address poverty and to protect their environment. There is a pressing need to address this situation and education is a sustainable way to do so with a multiplier effect.
Windle has unique experience of supporting the education of marginalised communities across Eastern Africa. With this deep experience and strong relationship with communities we will target both young men and young women to provide study opportunities in key skills which will equip them as leaders and professionals able to address the challenges and transform the wider community. The programme will compliment our extensive work at secondary and tertiary level and meet a specific gap.
