Less than 50% of all Matopeni Village children go to Kindergarten and primary school. On average it takes a student 10 years to complete Kindergarten school; and then only 35% of those who go to Primary school graduate. Nearly 70% of Matopeni Village is either unemployed or underemployed.This project will affect more than 1,000 orphaned children who work in the nearby quarry farm as casual laborers without going to school and their future will look brighter and sustainable.


Funding will enable the Ingrid Children education Centre to hire and retain more highly-qualified teachers, make necessary infrastructure, Buy text books/Teaching materials and classroom improvements,and subsidize the tuition for additional children.

Long-Term Impact

Having a Kindergarten, Primary and Secondary education gives impoverished children a significantly better chance of getting a job, learning a trade or going to college and breaking the cycle of poverty into which they were born.
