A study in Pantastic education
Smalls for All believes education can transform lives and help break the cycle of poverty so many children are trapped in.
“Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world” Nelson Mandela
Through ongoing discussions with partners and distributors and an increased knowledge of the challenges they are facing, Smalls for All established an education programme which supports some of the poorest children in countries where Smalls for All has a presence, to access education.
St Monica’s, is a children’s home just outside Nairobi. Since 2010, Smalls for All has sponsored Sarah, Ruth and Maureen from St Monica’s. On each trip to Kenya, Maria has caught up with the girls and is pleased to say that all three are happy, healthy and enjoying school. Sarah, the oldest of the girls will graduate from the University of Nairobi next year. Read more>
The Mashimoni Squatters School is a primary school in the Kibera slum of Nairobi. It teaches 580 children, many of whom are aids orphans who live in shacks with grandparents or distant relatives. In May 2011 Smalls for All started sponsoring 4 girls who attend the school, providing them with an education and the opportunity to change their lives. Read more>
The Soila Maasai Girls Rescue Centre at Suswa in the Rift Valley, Kenya, opened in 2005 as a refuge centre for young orphaned or destitute Maasai girls. Smalls for All sponsors 20 girls from Soila Maasai Girls Rescue Centre. Through the Suswa centre, and our support, the girls are offered a home and an education as an alternative path in life to FGM and early marriage, and in turn they receive the chance to empower and change their lives and those of generations to come.

For as little as £3 you can help us fund a child’s education for a month by contributing to our education programme. For £36 you could help fund their education for a year. We currently sponsor over 370 children in Kenya and Malawi and we’re aiming to raise at least £1,300 a month so we can continue to do that. With the help of our supporters, we hope to be able to help even more children in the future too.
