Sixth formers at PUC

Rehemath, Pooja, Shwetha and Monish in the flat at the school – Summer 2016

Thanks to scholarships and bursaries from Acts of Hope UK these lucky teenagers are able to attend PUC. This enables them to continue their education past GCSE level. These hard-working students hope to go to university and on to work placements. They need our support financially and emotionally through higher education. None of their family members have experienced the academic life before so they need mentors. As you can see they are very happy to be there!

Lunchtime at Acts of Hope School!

Watch this video from the latest trip to the school by John and Jenny Wishney to see the free lunches that the school provides each day so that the children can concentrate during lessons!

As you’ll see, each child brings their own plate and receives a hearty helping! If there is any left over, the children get to take it home at the end of the day.
