Beneficiary Children are being selected

Dear Supporters,

Warm greetings from Society for Poor People Development!

We have started the selection process for enrolling the 50 deserving children into the program from the 20 villages we work in.The academic year for implementing the program will start from June ( June, 2011) onwards, and hence it becomes imperative on our part  to be ready with the Students so that the program can be rolled out immediately once the  academic year starts.

Students are selected based on the criteria we have set out for:

  •  50% students should be girls
  • Preference to first generation school-goers
  • Preference to students from economically challenged background, children of single parents, physically challenged, HIV infected parents
  • Children who have secured more than 60% in their last grade.
  • Children who show commitment to learn further

We will be able to finish off the selection process in about a month and we will get back to you with more details.Meanwhile, please, spread the word on the importance of supporting this program.Talk to your friends and family ..bring in more support.This will benefit the children in a big way.
