We provide education programmes to 2,083 deprived boys

The fully-equipped school in Adlas ensures the most deprived boys who come to us receive full-time care, regular meals, medical and health support and the comfort of their own bed at night.

At school, they have access to a variety of facilities for hobbies, sports and the opportunity to play, including basketball and football courts to maintain their health and fitness, improve mental wellbeing and build their confidence and independence.

These children come to us as malnourished, vulnerable young boys and with your kindness they grow strong and thrive in their time at school.

Academic and vocational education quality is vital

The boys’ full-time studies cover a range of academic subjects with particular emphasis on science and maths. They also have access to mechanical and automotive workshops, and a variety of other workshops and facilities to learn vocational skills which help them secure jobs locally after graduating.

Their technical studies include computer system design and maintenance, electric car maintenance, tailoring, bread and pastry making and other skills which will equip them for future jobs with a variety of employers. Graduates have gone to work for large companies including Toyota, Honda and Stahl. Many employer organisations are owned outright by graduates of the school and new graduates represent over 50% of many of these workforces.
