Challenge

These children have all experienced challenges most of us can only imagine: hunger, violence, HIV/AIDS deaths in their families, disease, etc. Rural populations have less access to education, health care, and opportunities for improvement. At the source of all of these problems is a lack of education. We provide them with the opportunity to improve their lives by allowing them to attend school. We include teacher fees in this, since without qualified teachers education is impossible.

Solution

We pay school fees for each sponsored child for one full academic year. We also pay teachers' salaries. "The inability to pay school fees is a major obstacle for many children in their efforts to seek a better life for themselves."

Long-Term Impact

The project will liberate students from the cycle of poverty by providing them with an education to meet the demands of a changing world.
