The Abdul Rashid Khan Campus was established in 2005 in honour of James’ late father. At the age of 8, James’s father was not given the opportunity to attend school but instead put to work as an apprentice at a local tailors. James’ father was his biggest influence. He was the man who gave James hope for the future and was the reason he pursued his dreams to become an entrepreneur.
During a period of reflection James decided to visit his homeland to give children the opportunity that his Father didn’t have; the opportunity of free education. James purchased a plot of land in the same town as where James’ father was born and the campus was created to impact on the lives of the most vulnerable and give hope for future generations. It is a 16 classroom school, with the facility to educate 650 children committed to providing free education to the least fortunate and the most marginalised people.
