Education

Opens doors and opportunities. Education empowers children and gives them a reason to dream. Our schools provide quality, English-medium education to children from poor and marginalised communities including health care, sports and the Arts; emphasising respect for others, self-worth, dignity, freedom and equality.

Healthcare

Healthcare is essential to break the poverty cycle. Community Health Workers, primary clinics and HIV/AIDS centres help prevent sickness and disease – a cause and consequence of poverty and inequality. Currently our focus is mitigating the impact of COVID-19.
