​​​Helping to put an end to poverty
                                    one child at a time...

Bongwe is a large state school and has 850 pupils aged 4-14. Most classes have 70-80 children and we have even witnessed classes of up to 120 children with one teacher. We really
 enjoy our visits to this school and are always made to feel extremely welcome by the children and staff. Two of their teachers, Thomas and Matuku, came to England in 2010 thanks to 
a grant from The British Council, and spent time visiting local schools and interacting with the children and staff. 


Cornish primary schools have raised funds for:-

  • extra teachers, 
  • classroom floors, ​ 
  • desks, 
  • toilet refurbishment, 
  • gable ends for classrooms,
  • renovated blackboards, 
  • provided computers,
  • teacher ICT training, 
  • staff room,
  • assisted with Nursery porridge costs, 
  • furniture and exam fees for Standard Eight. 

Ways You Can Help...


These Children ​need your help, give as much as you can afford? Everything is appreciated.

A few of our Cornish Primary schools have formed links with the Bongwe school. These links are not just about fund raising but more about teaching our own children about diversity, for them to understand the global context of their local lives and develop skills that will enable them to combat injustice, prejudice and discrimination. 

And to realise they can and do make a difference.

 We are funding a very successful and worthwhile Girls Health Program at this school.  

​“The ultimate expression of generosity is not in giving of what you have, but in giving of who you are.”​


We appreciate all of their hardwork and generosity in helping us to support these amazing children.

These children are urgently in need of a sponsor. £14 a month. Do you know someone who could help?
