For the young people on scholarships in our school education is their only road out of poverty.
And once on that road, they need the vehicles to help them complete their journey - books.
Back in November, we launched a Buy a Book Appeal to raise £2000 to cover the cost of text booksfor every student in our Form 2 secondary school which would open when the 2017 academic year started this month, plus the books needed by their subject teachers.
By Christmas, thanks to YOU, we had acheived our target.
Now settled back into school, the youngsters are excited to be using the books you bought them and in today's video Mama and the kidsexpress their thanks to everyone who supported our appeal.
