Education is one of main ways to break the cycle of poverty. We believe in life-long education, not just for children, but also for adults, training them in practical skills that will help build resilience and self-reliance.
Our schools help many of the most disadvantaged children in our area gain the qualifications, skills and confidence they need to thrive as independent adults. And our educational outreach programmes boost the educational attainment of children in poor, rural Government schools.
Our adult skills training, particularly for in-demand occupations such as tailoring, helps women who may not have received a school education to learn a trade and become economically secure. Some of our 'graduate' tailors have gone on to establish successful businesses that enable them to feed and support their families and ensure their children can attend school and benefit from the opportunities they missed.
