Let the Children Live

  • John Wesley School, Eshowe, South Africa, is “a small school with a big heart,” providing primary education to those who can least afford, it in the heart of Zululand – we support the school by providing scholarships for those who find even the affordable unaffordable – on the first Sunday of each month
