How you can help

Women of Vision manage a preschool of approximately 39 children. Our emphasis is on providing a safe and healthy environment for the children of Westbury and surrounding areas.

We have been working since 1996 with a consistent passion and love – as our organisation has branched from caring for preschool children to offering an aftercare that assists them on their journey through school. We offer additional services to their families as well – we offer food security, psychological counselling, adult education, and skills training – this holistic approach has been proven to empower families and alleviate historical poverty and lack of access to education and services.

During these past few years, it has been more challenging to consistently guarantee the same level of services. We have lost some sponsors due to the economic impact of the pandemic and for this reason we have decided to involve a larger online community to support us with a little donation.

Below you can find a list of how we spend the funds we receive. You have the option of donating items on the list directly or if you prefer a donation via our website would be as helpful. We use funding for materials, but we also use it to pay a stipend to our teachers, for rent, and maintenance of the garden and premises.

Your support makes a huge difference, no amount is too small.
