Education & Training
Raised so far this year
Project Code: SEAwh601
The Education Foundation now officially runs three branches, which offer education and training opportunities to local people from low-socio-economic backgrounds. The newest branch opened in 2019! The team at the Education Foundation has also partnered with some schools to support and assist them with their language programs, as well as using the Foundation to assist team members with their culture and language acquisition.
Our team currently serves in two of the three branches, operating out of six locations, with local staff currently operating the third and newest branch. Educational training is focused on upgrading vocational skills in areas such as language acquisition and teaching, health care and practical life skills such as budgeting, computer training and organisation, to enable individuals and families to wholistically improve their standard of living, benefiting their entire communities.
The team is seeking and taking new opportunities to become more involved in local communities as the Education Foundation becomes increasingly known and trusted.
Lives are being changed through the relationships our team is forming through the opportunities from this project!
