There are 6 additional members of staff: 4 caregivers/cooks who take day and night shifts,1 cleaner and 1 fieldworker who liaises with the schools and picks and drops children at school daily.

We are very grateful to the staff who are working for a stipend in the interests of the children's welfare. The medium term plan would be to pay the staff a living wage.
