Educating Girls- Our Community programme

A Girl Student

Hello Supporters,

As you know the CAPS programme has many facets but its purpose is to provide education. One of our main aims is to help girls through school at least until class ten, and support them through their School leaving examination.

How do we do this?  We pay for thier tution costs, buy books and course materials but more than that we counsel the parents to keep thier child at school . We also provide uniforms and other assistance .

This note is from one girl student,

"Sometimes it is hard when there are so many chores to be done and my mother and father are not educated to go to school. I could not have done it, achieved my school leaving pass without the support of the people first person who regularly talked to my mother and father and who provided me with the things I needed to attend school. This has changed my life"  Thank you for all your help!"

Over the years we have been able due to peoples genorsity to reach out to over 200 girls from poor backgrounds and help them achieve thier dreams. On October 17th donations will be matched by Global Giving. The average cost of hellping a girl child stay in school is just $10 a month. So $120 will keep a girl in school for a whole year.

Thank you All,
