PDS organization builds and manages PDS Charity School. It is a Nursery School (kindergarten) located in Kibele Village (Unguja Island), welcoming orphans and vulnerable children from 2 to 6 years old. Without PDS Charity School, which covers all the
costs of their education through a sponsorship system, these children couldn’t afford to go to school.
The objective is to continue the construction of the school by building a Primary and Secondary School and later on a Center for Skills Development and Jobs Creation, where PDS would offer free education for children and entrepreneurship trainings for the youth.
