Wisdom junior school was founded to relieve poverty by educating and proving health care, food, shelter and psycho-social support to neglected children and orphans so that they achieve their full potentials. We focus on the neediest and most vulnerable children in our community. Many have lost one or both parents to poverty or disease. We help these children break away from the everyday cycle of poverty and hopelessness.
