Overall our work benefited over 14,000 people in impoverished communities across Africa.
We trained 1,232 frontline workers including 292 teachers and 78 Learning Support Assistants who provide inclusive education to the most excluded children.
We achieved a 1% recidivism rate in Uganda with children in conflict with the law. For every £1 spent, our project generated a social return of investment of £10.
In the Democratic Republic of Congo, we educated 2,650 children, 800 adults and 300 public transport users on what they can do to keep safe from the Ebola virus.
In Ghana, we gave 550 street children aged under 6 the chance to be in a safe, caring environment and access essential pre-school education.
In Kenya, 598 street children received quality inclusive education and a chance to build a better future for themselves.
