Chatsworth Schools has announced a new long-term partnership between Chatsworth and the charity Humanitas.
The Chatsworth-Humanitas partnership begins with the creation of a new high school in the remote village of Ayensuako in Ghana. Humanitas has already established a pre-school and primary school in the village and the new high school will ensure existing primary school students are able to continue their education.
The partnership was launched with an evening reception at the RAC in London and those present included the heads of Chatsworth Schools, friends of Chatsworth and the co-founders of Humanitas. Attendees heard from Chatsworth Schools Founder and CEO Anita Gleave on the inspirational work carried out by Humanitas and why the Chatsworth partnership is so important, and from Sarah Wade, CEO and Co-Founder of Humanitas, Dr Ramiz Momeni, Director and Co-Founder of Humanitas and Genevieve Jones-Hernandez, International Development Manager at Humanitas, about the life changing difference the project will make to hundreds of families in rural Ghana.
The project will not only provide secondary school education for 300 local children, but it will also help build connections in the UK, through video link-ups between the UK and Ghana, a Chatsworth YouTube channel and the contribution of Chatsworth children to a Chatsworth-Humanitas Ghana Foundation.
Anita Gleave, Founder and CEO of Chatsworth Schools, said: “Working in partnership with a charity to enable outstanding futures for children who are unable to attend a Chatsworth school, has been an important aim for the Chatsworth team since our launch in 2018. We are therefore thrilled to announce the start of this exciting relationship between Chatsworth and Humanitas.”
Sarah Wade, CEO and Co-Founder of Humanitas, added: “We have seen first-hand just how education can shape and change someone’s future and we are incredibly grateful to Chatsworth Schools for partnering with us and enabling us to grow our education programme by delivering new schools in developing countries. We are incredibly excited about this new joint venture and I know that together we will bring lasting change to many lives”.
