Earlier this year the firm got involved in its third centre in order to grow the number of beneficiaries.This year, the Kids Academy programme has been listed as a Non-Governmental Organisation and is now supporting over 100 pupils per year. Three full-time teachers have been hired to help the children learn valuable information which will help them later in their academic and professional lives.
