Helen O’Grady Academy

The Melita Foundation backed The Helen O’Grady Academy’s drama program, boosting kids’ confidence and creativity with super fun lessons.

The Helen O’Grady Academy, with help from the Melita Foundation, runs a super fun drama program that boosts kids’ confidence and creativity. This program is especially for children in care or at risk of social exclusion such as immigrants. It focused on important skills like communication and critical thinking, offering scholarships through partnerships with the Ministry of Education and other NGOs. The Melita Foundation supports this because it gives kids from tough backgrounds a chance to shine in a nurturing and creative setting. By participating in these drama sessions, children can develop their social skills and build self-esteem in a fun and supportive environment.

Making a difference together

Since starting in 2020, The Melita Foundation has backed many projects run by different groups and backgrounds. From local STEM skills for school kids in the Three Cities to global stuff like planting trees, ESG awareness, teaching maritime law and conservation and ensuring our heritage is well taken care of.
