To put it very simply, we want to inspire children to aspire to a brighter future. We want children to have dreams and give them the support to chase those dreams.
A big aspiration indeed especially as we are only just starting off on chasing our own dream. Our initial link is with Rowdown Primary School (see About Us for more detail) and therefore we are focusing our attention on the Rowdown community. If we grow successfully, we would look to expanding the remit further into New Addington.
The Foundation is a registered charity with the following aims:
1. For the children:
To benefit those pupils at Rowdown who have been identified as having an exceptional sporting, artistic or academic ability, skill or talent by offering financial, motivational or logistical support. We can provide access to focused extra-curricular activities in that sport, art or academic subject in order to give enhanced career opportunities for those pupils. Often our support will be for individual children but there will also be occasions where we can offer group support to like-minded pupils to learn and improve together.
We are also encouraging all pupils to work hard and achieve more at the school by organising the Rowdown School Awards. This will, hopefully, be an annual event and will celebrate those children who have excelled either academically or in a sport or art.
2. For their parents:
