Cashew Early Years School

Cashew Early Years gives a child aged 4 to 6, like Joshua*, a head start out of poverty with vital Early Years education.

A head start out of poverty

Joshua*, like all Cashew Early Years children receives free teaching from a professionally qualified teacher on 5 days a week, plus all of his books, pens & paper. In addition, Joshua receives a healthy meal each day, sometimes the only meal that he might eat.

Cashew support is limited to 2 years because after this time each child will be ready to progress to Elementary School, where former Cashew students are renowned for their eagerness to learn.

Transforming lives

Without this support Joshua would likely not receive any Early Years education meaning he would join the school system at the age of 6 with little or no reading or writing skills and almost certainly lacking the social confidence to thrive in this environment. 
You can have the knowledge that you are making a difference to a child like Joshua for just £4 per week. See below for details.

The proof it works

Read the endorsement of Cashew Early Years from Mary, the mother of Candice, who is a student. You can see that this lifeline  gives new hope to the whole family as well as a great start in education for Candice, read here story here.

Joshua's Story

The support that Joshua gets through Cashew Pre School means that he will be ready for the challenges of Elementary school when he is 6 despite the harsh circumstances of his home life.

You can give a start to a Cashew child

You can change the life of a young child by sponsoring an extra place at Cashew Early Years for 2 years. You will receive an introductory profile and photo and a year-end report on the child’s progress. 


Can you sponsor an empty space at a table at Cashew Early Years School?

Not all children need support after Cashew Early Years. When that happens with the child graduating, we will introduce you to a new student eager for the opportunity that sponsoring can provide and the cycle starts again.

Each child needs £4 of sponsorship per week to secure a place, collected every month as £16.


£16 guarantees 5 days a week schooling from professionally trained teachers plus all pens and paper plus a tasty nutritious meal. The family also receives weekly support from qualified social workers
