Help Us to Help Others

The U Foundation recognises that education is the key to improving the future prospects of people living in less developed parts of the world. We have made great strides but there is still much to be done and this is where we need your help and support.

Whilst we maintain our Siankaba Nursery School project, we also aim to assist individuals who, by means of a scholarship programme, wish to progress to a higher level of education.

Thank you to all of our sponsors and supporters who allow us to continue with the work that we do.

Over 400 children helped into education

Our projects and programmes help to give disadvanted children the genuine real world opportunities afforded by a good education

Featured Project

In 2006 a make shift pre-school, supported by The U Foundation, was set up, housed in a simple mud hut building that belonged to a nearby church. The U Foundation, working alongside the Siankaba Community Trust, has raised enough funds to build a nursery school, fully stocked with toys and books, equipped with solar power and running water. The school can accommodate 60 children between the ages of 3 and 6.

6 new classrooms at Jumbe Secondary School, Zambia, just in time for the rainy season!

Thanks to our supporters the 460 pupils no longer have to take lessons outdoors. Well done everyone!
