“Education is the great engine of personal development. It is through education that the daughter of a peasant can become a doctor, that the son of a mineworkers can become the head of the mines, that a child of farm workers can become president of a great nation.”
We believe that by educating a child we are developing a nation. In many African countries, education even at the primary school level is not free, which explains why many children are withdrawn from school. The education of disadvantaged children and orphans is at the core of our work. We believe that each child has within them a talent, and our objective is to help each child we support to achieve their full potential in life. We do this through providing access to good primary and secondary schools in their communities, and where possible to go on to university or other tertiary education. This means supporting some children for fourteen years or more. Our work is contributing to the education of the girl child, particularly in communities where traditionally girls are disadvantaged and are not given the opportunity of education. Since 2008 an increasing number of supported children have gained admission to universities. Funding for this work is mainly from child sponsorship from individual donations.
