Friends of Hlekweni runs a range of projects most of which focus on improving access to education and on raising the standard of provision particularly through improving school facilities and equipment, including e.g. specific grants for library equipment and basics such as pencils. We are also supporting a scheme providing re-usable sanitary towels to enable girls to attend school throughout the month.
We are developing a range of school feeding schemes (see School Feeding Schemes in the drop-down menu). In addition, we have begun to work on the introduction of peace education in the schools we work with (see more in the drop-down menu).
Besides our main projects, we give a limited number of grants for the relief of hunger and distress.
