Investing in children's futures


San Ignacio Home and School / Rosa de Anze Home

We have sponsored the higher education of a number of youngsters who were either resident at one of these homes of at the San Ignacio school. Three of the girls from the San Ignacio have now graduated as teachers and another with a medical degree. We previously helped with the expenses of two boys in the final year of the school, which is adjacent to the San Ignacio Home. In 2019 we funded the further education of two boys from the school, both doing IT-related courses. Additionally a boy and a girl we were sponsoring completed their courses in Nursing and Medical Technology, respectively in 2019.
