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 will benefit the whole school community, we do have some donors who particularly want to help a child to go to school. We set up the Pupil Support Fund in 2016 to help some of the children in greatest need to attend Uphill Junior School. Twenty children are currently receiving financial support for schooling – 11 girls and 9 boys.
In the words of school Director, Elius: “Sponsoring a child is planting a tree! A tree bears many fruits that benefit many people!”
