In 2010/2011, 963 slow learners who were unable to integrate within the existing school system due to a lack of foundational knowledge i.e basic literacy, were engaged with a more conducive learning system suited to their unique needs in 24 villages. More than half this number have graduated and have integrated back into the educational system. Unfortunately there were cases of dropouts due to lack of parental interest and families moving into other areas away from host families. Teachers have focused on providing parents with advice on education needs and importance of education for children and this has paid dividends with most parents being supportive of their children’s education more than before.

LEADS has extended its educational support to the recently resettled villages in Madu educational zone. People of this area faced several displacements until recently and many of the children of this area have never had a regular school life and some of them have never been to school. This has severely affected their education and interest in the education. Those who are never been to school have now enrolled into the schools and find difficult to cope Many children don't even know the alphabet of their mother tongue . Teachers of the schools have their own demands they are unable to give and special attention to those who have fallen behind.
