Info about the Preschool

Investment in early childhood education is a proven, cost-effective way to promote advancements in developing nations. Children who participate in early childhood education programs are more likely to start primary school on time, continue their education through high school, and have a reduced probability of living in poverty and contracting HIV.

Programs like this one particularly benefit orphans and vulnerable children by providing a safe haven for those who lack a stable home life and face the persistent burden of discrimination. There are an estimated 700,000 to one million orphans and vulnerable children in Mozambique, a number that is increasing due to the prevalence of HIV.

Currently in its second year, a preschool located in a city in Mozambique provides a safe and nurturing environment for young children. While the school boasts a dedicated, local staff and a growing number of students, it currently lacks classroom facilities. The school has already purchased land and has enlisted community members to donate their time to aid in the school construction. As this project is managed entirely by the members of the community, there are no overhead costs, which means that 100% of your tax-deductible donation will go directly towards school construction, enabling the community to improve the lives of hundreds of children in the years to come.
