In the past two years of our School Sponsorship Programme in Kori Chiefdom, we have been supporting ten (6 males and 4 females) children in their schooling with focus on early childhood education. Based on our assessments for the 2017 to 2018 academic year, we realized the impact of our intervention. Two of our male beneficiary children had graduated to junior secondary schools and one of the females had traveled to stay with her aunt in Freetown, where she is now attending school. During the 2019 final assessment we found out that we only had seven (7) beneficiaries on our School Sponsorship Programme. With this we decided to expand the sponsorship to more children within the chiefdom.
With high interest in the need to extend our School Sponsorship Programme to more vulnerable children across the Kori Chiefdom, we decided to participate in the Global Giving Acceleration Online Fundraising campaign. That program lasted for three weeks and ended on the 27th September 2019, and we were able to raise $ 850 out of our $ 5, 000 goal. We were unable to meet our expected goal to extend our School Sponsorship Programmes to more vulnerable children in Kori Chiefdom. However, with the little funds raised we leveraged to support 15 vulnerable school children with school supplies, and advocacy programmes on the importance of early childhood education in the Kori Chiefdom.
We are most grateful for the generous support from Woodland Young Peacebuilders and our network members through their kind donations in our September Global Giving Accelerator Online Fundraising Competition. It will be instrumental in the implementation of School Sponsorship Support Programme for 2019 - 2020 academic year. This year’s project benefitted 15 (7 Males - 8 Females) vulnerable children across seven vulnerable villages in Kori Chiefdom. These children are supported with school logistics which entails, a pair of uniform, a pair of shoe, a dozen of notebooks, a dozen pens, pencils, mathematical sets, sharpeners, and erasers.
