There are some children who’s parents cannot afford our minimal school fees and who need your help.
Any additional funds raised would also be used to subsidize our children whose parents cannot afford the full fee & additional costs ( swimming classes, horse riding, educational outings etc.)
To those of you who have helped us in the past, thank you for your continued support.
Looking forward to your consideration.
