Aidlink works to provide better education and increase enrolment and retention in schools. There are a number of different reasons why children are not in school. At Aidlink, we work to remove some of those obstacles.
We provide access to water on school grounds or within walking distance so that thirst, or the work required to fetch water, does not keep children from school. We build inclusive bathrooms with disability access and handwashing facilities, as well as changing rooms, and supply sanitary pads.
We provide school meals to thousands of children, so that hunger is not a reason to miss class; we sensitise communities on the value of education and the harm of archaic cultural practices – to keep children in school.
