In Gbendembu Ngowahun chiefdom, school enrollment is high but a lot of children drop out of school very early mainly due to the inability of parents to meet school needs and at the same time meet basic family welfare need. Girls, as young as 14, can become pregnant and drop out. These children end up helping on the farms. For them the future is bleak. This project will affect about 150 less privileged children and drop-outs and their parents/guardians living in Gbendembu Ngowahun Chiefdom.


Provide fees, uniforms and learning materials to 150 pupils. Train 150 Parents/guardians in gari, jam, and other food processing skills to generate income and sustain their families. Provide Start-up kits to parents after the training.

Long-Term Impact

In the long-term, all children of school-going age in Gbendembu Ngowahun chiefdom attend school and the drop-out rate is eliminated. From the income they generate, parents can take care of their family needs and keep their children at school.
