Celebrating a successful start to 2011!

Challenging Heights is celebrating a fantastic start to 2011, with an increase in the number of children we support. 

The 170 former child labourers and at risk children supported through GlobalGiving have gone back to school for the second term of the school year.  We are even more excited about our achievements because this year we have been able to support an additional 30 children, bringing the total number of children supported to 200.

The past term has seen many improvements for the children at Challenging Heights School.  The children have shown improved attendance and punctuality.  Many have shown an improvement in grades on the previous year.

The children have also become more involved in the community with many participating in cultural activities such as dancing and drumming.  Others have entered Challenging Heights’ community spelling bee where children from different communities compete against each other.
