About the fund

The first of its kind in Canada, Taigh Sgoile na Drochaide is a newly established independent Gaelic immersion primary school in Mabou, Inverness County, Nova Scotia that raises children not only as Gaelic speakers, but with an understanding of what it means to be Gaels, and how that knowledge connects them to the wider world.


This fund was established to provide an incredible opportunity for anyone to be a part of that vision and to support the development of real citizens of the world. The school is set to open its doors in September 2021 through a partnership with Colaisde na Gàidhlig / The Gaelic College.
