Only 30% of children who start primary school education reach grade six at the correct age and even less go onto secondary school. Having provided education for 3,000 children to date we are now concentrating on putting between 600-1000 students through secondary school and college over the next ten years. Due to COVID-19 we aim to provide hand sanitizer and soap over the long-term for all our students for when they enter and leave the schools each day to reassure parents that it is safe.
