Dear supporters,

With your help, 258 working children have been able to take part in project activities this year.

In our city where many children have to work, and where many have no way of ensuring their right to education, the project you have supported has made a real difference.

The independent evaluation of the project this summer found that 97% of child participants interviewed are currently in school, 94% passed the end of year exam, and 100% of those interviewed will continue studying next year.

And all the children in the project are there because they really enjoy the activities and choose to take part!

In this 60 second video clip, they say thanks for your support:
