We work to improve access to quality education, both mainstream and maktab related, assist in health care and provide training for stable livelihoods. The Shade Trust currently supports the Caravan project, mainly through fundraising. It keeps a close eye on the correct utilisation of its funds, with transparency. The Caravan project works closely with orphans and widows, to provide quality education to orphans and assistance to widows, from the vulnerable sections of society. Progress is monitored through working and sharing of information in the form of reports, audits, inspections and personal visits.
