The School of Night Rabbits has helped close to 900 children over the last 14 years. On top of the literacy and numeracy classes, children spend time with a professional counsellor who works to understand why they are living on the streets and to encourage them to return home and continue with their education.
All the students are given a health check-up and health insurance, so they can access free medical care, while their parents and family members are supported with two female goats to rear and breed from. The profits generate from the goats can then be used to pay for books, uniforms and pencils to support their children’s schooling.
This year we’ve seen 117 children return to live with their families, 79 of them have also enrolled back at school. The team will continue to monitor their progress and some children will even continue to attend the School of Night Rabbits classes to keep up with the friends they made there!
