Education

Lacey Braxton's insight:

Every child has the right to education but many children are not able to go to school because of high costs, demographic location and poverty. Education is one way of breaking the cycle of poverty. Little Hands works hand in hand with the local leaders and the department of education to provide these children free and equal access to a good education so that they will be able to make use of their potentials and therefore making a difference in their quality of life. Our programs includes promoting a healthy , safe and child friendly school environment, improve teachers’ skills through training and offer life skills training.
