The CUDDLE Trust’s focus is on education, especially preschool education in  disadvantaged areas. The CUDDLE Trust believes that education is the key to a  more successful future for both the individual and the community. Through  experience we have learned that the proverb “Give a man a fish and feed him for  a day, Teach a man to fish and feed him for a lifetime” is the most effective  strategy to combat poverty and bring about positive change in a community.  The Trust offers preschool teacher training at both a basic and advanced level, as well as then visiting the schools of those teachers to further assist them through donations of teaching materials and upgrading of their facilities.  The “créche course” as it has come to be known is our flagship project, but we also look to fill various other needs by such initiatives as food parcel distribution, winter warmer packs, sponsoring of school fees/college tuition, etc.
