Educational Fund for Indigent Children

by Water, Agroforestry, Nutrition and Development Foundation Vetted since 2010 Top Ranked Effective Nonprofit Site Visit Verified

Summary

The fund will be used to pay for the educational needs of indigent children especially those living in very remote mountain areas. Sometimes as simple lack of writing pads, school bags and slippers will prevent a child from going to school. The most problematic is the lack of food with starving children unable to go to school for lack of energy. They also often get sick and they lack medical support further debilitating them.

Challenge

Schoolchildren of very poor families living in remote mountain barrios are often severely disadvantaged. The only way out for them from their present poverty and malnourished condition is in being able to go to school and be able to read, write and do math. With these life-skills, they are able to improve their living conditions when they grow into adults. The need for an education is indeed urgent and we will be targeting a total of 1,200 schoolchildren for this project.

Solution

Providing very poor schoolchildren with basic support such as school supplies, uniform, shoes and nutritious food will enable them to go to school with ease and with dignity. This project will target schoolchildren living in deep mountains and provide them with life-saving support.

Long-Term Impact

Being literate is a great advantage and being illiterate will cripple the child for life. A little support for them during this time so that they are able to read, write and do math is a great advantage for them that they will bring through their adulthood. This is indeed an enduring gift.
