We currently are supporting 73 students, who typically come from subsistence backgrounds, and many of them have lost one or both parents. The majority grew up in mud built huts with grass roofs, living below the poverty line. At the same time, they all have exceptional academic potential as demonstrated in their Public School Leaving Certificate Examinations at the end of primary school, with many coming first in their school zone and the majority coming in the top 10.
