Would you like to help a child to go to school?
Uphill Junior School serves a poor, rural area where many of the children live on shambas (smallholdings that produce food for the family only). Money is in short supply and schooling is often only provided for boys. Whilst we prefer to undertake activities that help the whole school population, we occasionally receive requests for donations to be targeted to help a child to go to school. As a result, the Pupil Support Fund was set up to help some of the most deprived children in the community to attend Uphill Junior School. Thirteen children are currently receiving financial support for schooling – 8 girls and 5 boys.
In the words of school Director, Elius: “Sponsoring a child is planting a tree! A tree bears many fruits that benefit many people!”
