Our Story – Escape From Poverty

Building Blocks Learning Centres stay open in the afternoons to support and mentor scholarship students who drop in for help with new subjects and homework from their new schools.

This support is vital for those pupils who may initially be uncomfortable in their new schools, mixing with children from more privileged backgrounds, and sometimes needing help with unfamiliar topics in their homework

“Escape from Poverty” is a registered charitable project, raising funding in Britain to provide Sponsorships and scholarships to cover ongoing mentoring and extra tuition in addition to covering 80% of school fees.”

Three years of education at a Building Blocks Learning Centre is completely free of any charge to the children and their parents

After three years, children “graduate” from Building Blocks and are qualified to take up a place at an English-medium school, through from age 6 to age 16.
