Proclade Yanapay Hostel Maintenance Programme (PYHMP)

About this Programme

The Proclade Yanapay Hostel Maintenance Programme (PYHMP) was launched in 2017 to reduce the early school leaving and eradicate illiteracy in various places in Africa, Asia and South America

Student housings play a key-role in many less-developed countries where often children cannot go to school for many reasons: poor economic conditions of their families, lack of awareness about education, lack of transports, long distance, risks for girls to be abused on their way to the school, etc.

The presence of student housings increase access to learning opportunities of children from disadvantaged communities.

In partnership with Fundación Proclade Yanapay based in Bilbao, Spain, since 2017 we have been supporting around 1000 students every year.
