The school is considering a number of projects for the future.  However, all of the projects require additional finances which the school does not currently have.  At the present time, the school is financed with a combination of parental contributions and sponsorships or donations from individuals and local enterprises. None of the parents are able to afford the full cost of educating their child and such specialised education is not available through the mainstream system.  Currently the monthly overheads are outpacing the monthly income of the school.  This is despite the fact that the teacher’s salaries, which account for over 60% of the overheads, are at a bare minimum. In addition, due to the financial situation of the school, it is unable to take children whose parents cannot afford to pay a minimum monthly contribution.

Our school is small, so even small contributions can make a big difference.  If you are able to help in any way possible, then please click on the links below to find out more:
