An African Dream supports orphans through St Mark’s Primary School which was set up in 2007 and currently has around 400 pupils, aged between 4-16, of which 1/3 are orphans. Through sponsorship AAD provides education, two meals a day, a uniform and a pair of shoes for each orphan. It also ensures staff are paid and facilities are developed.
Education of orphans is a key part of the vision of An African Dream, as being orphaned (which may mean the loss of one or both parents) significantly disadvantages children. Education provides them with a good grounding in English and other key subjects. It also gives them stability and confidence.
If you would like to sponsor an orphan for £12 per month then we would love to hear from you, please contact us via email.
