We are delighted to announce our latest partnership with Hampton Court House School!
Aligned with one of our core aims in educating people and especially children about the wonder, positivity and hope in the African continent, the importance of education and the impact of our work, this partnership provides the perfect opportunity for us to do just that! The students at HCH will come together in fundraising initiatives to support our scholars, learn about the impact of their support, and with it adopt a charitable mindset from an early age. This a partnership we are thrilled to embark upon!
Nestled in Bushy Park on the South West London and Surrey borders, Hampton Court House is an independent co-educational day school for ages 2 – 18 years. In keeping with their ethos, Achievement With Heart, Hampton Court House believes that children need some guided freedom in order to develop their independence and courage to use their voice.
In our rapidly changing world, the concept of “purpose driven” actions, undertaken to serve a social cause is becoming an important trend for the future. Generation Y and Z lead the way in choosing to bring meaning to their lives both within their social circles and work space. Embracing purpose driven activities holds huge opportunities for us as a charity and we are excited to share with the students at Hampton Court House how they can positively contribute towards society by actively supporting us.
This school is part of the Dukes Education family of schools and educators, brought together by a common purpose: to give children the foundations for an extraordinary life, through education, based in the UK. Dukes share the philosophy to both support each individual to live with purpose and to encourage a love of learning. Aatif Hassan is the Founder and Chairman of Dukes Education. He is also Chairman of Cavendish Education, a group of 11 schools for pupils with dyslexia and autism. Rafiki Thabo partners with three organisations in Kenya with whom we work to reduce the barriers to education for children living with disabilities, one of which is the Autism Society of Kenya (ASK). Through education and supporting children with disabilities, our combined focus is aligned and this truly makes our partnership one that fits hand in glove!
‘Hampton Court House is incredibly excited to partner with Rafiki Thabo Foundation. Rafiki Thabo’s vision in empowering scholars through education to enable them to reach their full potential is exactly in line with our own ethos. At HCH, we believe in nurturing students to become the best versions of themselves.”
