Hundreds of children helped into education
Our projects and programmes help to give disadvantaged children the genuine real world opportunities afforded by a good education.
In 2006 a makeshift nursery school, initiated by The U Foundation, was set up, housed in a simple mud hut building. The charity, working alongside the Siankaba Community Trust, has since raised enough funds to build and maintain a fully functioning primary school. This can accommodate 165 children from pre-school to Grade 7.
