  • Need


    The project is trying to solve illiteracy, offering orphaned and underprivileged children, youth and adults an opportunity to broaden their reading and IT skills. The project will also teach the youth how to write their curriculum Vitae and be in a position to get employed and improve their lives consequently uplifting the underprivileged community
    Our target is to offer girls and women a safe environment in which to study within reach of the community they live in.


    The project will offer a resource centre, IT, hard copy books which we already have been stocking up. It will alleviate poverty, unemployment and illiteracy as we will provide an opportunity conducive to receiving information by way of computers, a quiet environment for Reading/studying. By making parents/guardians learn how to read and write they will help the children with homework and reading exercises. Women and girls seem eager to learn and manage their homes to better the community
