Privately Funded Schools

We partner with CHETI Primary & Secondary School which provides an outstanding level of education to children living in poverty in rural communities. We believe CHETI’s education gives a child the greatest chance of breaking the cycle of poverty. This is a long term partnership which started in 2013.

Government Funded Schools

Government schools are often under resourced and offer a lower standard of education than CHETI schools meaning breaking the cycle of poverty may be more difficult. In 2019, we partnered with 3 government schools to improve the learning environment for the students and remove barriers to accessing education.
