Without education children in deprived communities are less likely to escape the vicious cycle of poverty and they may never have the opportunity to reach their potential.
Globally nearly 400 million children of primary school age cannot read or write. More than half of all 3 to 6 years old have no access to Pre-Primary education and 25million children will never enrolled in school and 2/3 of them are girls.
WYCF’s main ambition is to provide and maintain a safe, healthy and proper learning environment for our children. We provided primary school education to 836 children directly in these communities – 518 girls, 318 boys. Our trusted and committed teachers follow the national curriculum.
These activities are supported by the provision of teacher training, learning materials, stationary, voluntary teachers’ assistants, community committees, a growing library, Summer School and medical assistance when necessary.

We run a primary school for 170 children – 107 girls, 63 boys – in the heart of the community. From this base, we also work to raise the living standards of our children’s families.
