A little about your partner school...
West End Destiny Academy was founded by Valentine Adisa in 2010. With her passion for working with children, Valentine was inspired to set up the school to help the less fortunate in the community.
Without community-run projects such as West End Destiny, it is unlikely that these children would receive an education at all, due to the costs of items such as uniforms, desks and textbooks that come with attending a government-run school.
Today, the school provides a free education and daily meal to around 70 children between the ages of two and 10.
