What happens when the kids leave school?
We’re a number of years away from any graduations yet… (we started with the youngest first) but our aim is to produce “a man among men, and a woman among women”.
Many of these children have never handled currency, let alone needed to budget it. Foundational skills like these are as central to becoming a wise and productive person as good learning and life skills; so that’s where we’re focusing – holistic training, to be able to make (or just get) jobs in the future.
We’re expecting to help locals pioneer a small business, becoming a valuable income stream for both the parents, and the school. It, or a future iteration, could be a place where the children work or train after graduation.
