We provide free intermediate education in our catch-up classes for children, aged 4-15 in Katanga Slum, whose parents can’t afford to send them to school.
Our aim is to get these children, with mostly no previous formal education, to a standard where they are able to pass an entrance exam in a mainstream school. We then find people to partner with us in Sponsoring a Child to these mainstream schools, for just £20 per month.
We, unlike many child sponsor charities, work with the whole family, so the sponsorship doesn't end there. Our long term goal is to support the parents in our Livelihoods program to earn money, so that in 5 years from working with us, they will be able to pay for their own children's education.
