Philia Foundation takes a pragmatic approach to remove critical barriers to quality education for primary school pupils.
Establishing a school sponsorship programme, which includes providing onsite catering, a fully equipped computer lab, and scholarships for pupils in Thies.
The project has been running since 2014 and over this period nearly 50 students received scholarships. The Foundation also put in place such basic amenities as toilets for pupils and teachers.
Philia Foundation also contributed towards the creation of a new library and plans to build a basketball court and a football field at the school. Future plans include a computer lab and an outdoor vegetable garden.
