After more than 20 years of wars in the Balkans, many refugee children have to drop out of school to help parents earn money for basic necessities like food. Six scholarships for six poorest children this school year will make a difference and six more children can go to school and achieve successful grades, complete mandatory elementary and secondary. This will help them get qualification, find regular jobs and help their families rebuild their lives. Be part of their better future.
Children living in the collective centers in Serbia drop out of school even at the elementary school level (67 percent) either because they don't have what to wear, eat, or cannot afford textbooks so they go to help parents earn money in the street. Only 30 percent of them enroll into secondary school. Without education, they cannot find any regular job and move out of the collective centers to start their own lives and families. We are lacking six scholarships for refugee children this year.
We provide winter footwear, clothes, the snacks/lunch at school for about 750 refugee and displaced children, provide the needed textbooks, bus fare and additional tutoring for them. We need six scholarships for poorest children this school year, so that they can go to school and achieve successful grades, complete mandatory elementary and secondary education and find a regular job.
Six refugee children will complete elementary or secondary school and with their diplomas will be eligible to register with the National Employment Agency, will be in a position to find a regular full-time job or start their own business and become independent active members of the society. This will assist their integration and help the integration of their parents into local communities so that different generations of refugees and displaced people in Serbia can start rebuilding their lives.
