  • Need


    The Chole Project's ultimate objective is self sufficiency for the Chole community, primarily through education. Up to the late 1990s, when the Project began, only one child in the community's entire history had ever completed formal secondary education. With the Trust's help 8 are now in university, and 2 others have already graduated. There is also a Kindergarten attended by practically every infant in the community, and an adult Learning Centre for IT and English language teaching.


    Contributions will help the Chole Trust to continue its programme of granting educational bursaries, and making grants to help meet the costs of the Kindergarten and the Learning Centre.

  • Aims

    Aim 1

    For the Chole community to attain self sufficiency.


    » Make grants towards educational bursaries, and the running costs of the Kindergarten and Learning Centre.

    What success will look like

    The ultimate measure of success would be for the Trust to become redundant. Intermediate milestones include increasing numbers of people being educated and becoming IT literate.

  • Impact


    The Chole Project will continue to foster self sufficiency among the community.


    The biggest risk is insufficient funding to enable the Trust to support the community on the path of increasing ambition and self confidence.


    Through regular newsletters and the Trust's website.

    The Chole Community

    Without the commitment of the community to its own future, and it's willingness to take responsibility for that itself, no progress would be possible.
