We are hugely proud of her
The Helping Hands Programme is currently supporting 15 other students at different stages of their education life, giving young people the opportunity of further education that would be otherwise denied them. Once we commit to a young person we commit to support them for as far into education as they can go. It is a “Golden Ticket” we would love to be able to offer to more young people. If you are able to make a long term commitment we’d love to hear from you. The impact of a good education is infinite.
