3 Countries – 3 Projects – £30,000

The Wild Frontiers Foundation is embarking on its biggest fundraising campaign to date. We have set ourselves a target to raise £30,000 and fund 3 education projects in 3 communities we visit.

 

Pakistan: £10,000 for education projects in remote communities

£5000 for Kalash primary school land
Since the devastating floods that hit the Kalash Valleys, in northern Pakistan in the summer of 2013, the children of Balanguru Village have been without a primary school building. Through all weather conditions, the children have since been taking classes outdoors (and in tents as pictured) with no formal school setting.

Parents and Kalash leaders are understandably concerned about re-building the school on the same exposed plot of land for fear of future flooding. £5000 will enable us to purchase an alternative piece of land and accommodate the primary school students in a much safer environment.

£5000 for the ongoing education of students at Baleygon School

Dedicated to the cause, we are aiming to raise a further £5000 to employ an additional teacher, supply more educational material and ensure the long-term sustainability of our sponsored school in the remote northern mountains of Pakistan. Your donations can help us do this.

Ethiopia: £10,000 to fund four e-learning centres in Ethiopian schools

The Wild Frontiers Foundation started working with Camara, an international charity and social enterprise that uses technology to deliver 21st century skills to improve education in disadvantaged communities, on its classroom sponsorship programme in 2014.

With £2500 initial funding from the foundation, Camara was able to install 25 recycled computers, loaded with educational software, and create a new e-Learning Centre at Aba’ala Secondary School in the remote Afar region of northern Ethiopia. Teachers from the school were also trained in basic digital literacy skills, simple hardware maintenance and how to use computers to teach other subjects.

With your help we are aiming to raise £10,000 to install four more e-learning centres in other Ethiopian schools.

The Wild Frontiers Foundation has teamed up with The Hope Foundation to support its training schemes in Kolkata. £1250 provides a 12-month traineeship at Hope’s training restaurant for a young adult from the Kolkata slums.
