Children from poor families become drop out because parents can not afford to pay tuition fees and provide educational materials. This project is intended to keep these children in school.

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

How will this project solve this problem?

This project is aimed at providing educational materials and paying of tuition fees for children who are affected in order to keep them in school and complete their education and also reduce the drop out rate in this community

Potential Long Term Impact
