Foundations Academy began in 2005 as a small home-school to try to bring orphans up-to-speed and then integrate them into local schools. However, during the summer of 2010, we tested many of our students (orphans) who had been in local schools, and discovered that they lacked the basics for success in school. We realized that we just had to expand to our own full-fledged school.
We kicked off with about 25 students and five teachers for the 2010-11 school year. We have about 70 students and 15 teachers this year. It has been exciting to see the students grow in their knowledge.
Many of the children in the school are orphans or partial orphans while others come from the community around us.
