KILT schools

KILT works with 13 primary schools and four high schools. 15 of these are no-fee government schools who service the poorest neighbourhoods. We have funded an additional 56 teachers and assistant teachers to reduce the teacher to learner ratio from 1:38 to an average 1:30. Our teacher support projects reach a total of 313 teachers and assistant teachers and we also fund assistant teachers’ studies as they work towards their teaching qualifications.
