One of our focus points is education. A high percentage of children from disadvantaged families do not go to school. Disabilities are often considered a wrath of God. Therefor disabled children are often hidden, rather than money spent on. That is why we support Port Reitz Special School.
Port Reitz School is an integrated boarding school. The school as around 260 children, of which around 180 are handicapped (physically or mentally or both). Around 80 children are from the surrounding slums and would otherwise not go to school at all.
Maendeleo supports this school in several ways but mostly with nutrition and improvement of education.
