Sponsor A Child
Sponsoring a child is a fantastic way to support the children at the Siankaba Community Trust School. The school receives no assistance from the local government and is entirely funded by The U Foundation. The programme costs just £20 per child per month and helps to provide:
- A hot meal for each child every day
- Salaries for the teachers
- Learning materials
- Additional support for essentials such as uniform, shoes, etc
It is important to note that the programme contributes to the care of all the children at the school, not just those who have sponsors.
