Project: The Alicia Thomas Free school Learning
The Temporary containers will allow children to begin their school learning for free. This is a project we have launched aimed at teaching children from the age of 6-10years old. The free school will give low-income families the opportunity to send their children to school without having to decide whether to keep the child from studying and use the money for food and keeping a roof over their head. The extra £40,000 will allow us to keep the school free by funding meals, giving teachers an affordable wage, and cater for emergency maintenance.
Education is a key element in a child's life. This project will allow us to support over 200 students in the local province of Kinkole. Children struggle to attend school due to war, kidnappings, and parents simply not being able to afford school fees. Our project enables us to bring the school to communities and families. Allowing us to give children a future to dream about.

What are we doing to support those effected by the coronavirus.
The recent coronavirus outbreak has left the world stunned although it hasn't hit Africa as hard yet we are in the process of doing what we can to aid to those in London. Following Government guidance to stay home and avoid outdoor activities to control the spread of the virus we are focused on;
The elderly and vulnerable – for individuals who struggle to obtain simple necessities we offer to collect toiletries, fresh or basic items such as food and medication from restaurants local shops and supermarkets and even coffee shops.
Mental health support – during such unprecedented times self-isolation can be a negative factor and the simple service of offering companionship through our helpline and our online platform we are able to keep in touch with individuals who need regular interaction most.
Rough sleepers – whether you are homeless or have been recently evicted we offer support in the form of signposting those in need to local authorities or collaborative charities offering a way off the streets.
