The students selected for the Sponsorship program have so far achieved outstanding school results. However, poverty is impeding their ability to continue school. All of our Sponsorship recipients were working long hours in hard physical labour to support themselves and their families, as well as trying to attend school. Without the Sponsorship program, these children are at high risk of dropping out of school. This program ensures we give each of these children the best opportunity to continue their schooling and reach their potential.
The students are selected in consultation with a panel of teachers. We provide the support the students need to continue their studies, including housing rent, food, firewood, school supplies, school uniform and essential personal items. We arrange Teacher Mentors to look after the children’s psycho-social needs.
Sponsors receive details about their student, including a photograph and a brief personal bio and updates about their student’s progress throughout the Ethiopian school year (which commences in September and ends in July). Sponsors also receive the satisfaction they are making a life-long difference to their student’s life. This impact is far reaching, positively effecting the child’s family and long-term, their community.
Sponsoring a child costs $70 a month or $840 annually.
100% of Scholarships are tax deductible.
