Summary

We are providing scholarship for 30 destitute kids from remote villages into secondary school. Our beneficiaries include orphans, school drop outs and kids from the poorest households for whom this is the only chance. Your support will help pay for accommodation, fees, food and school needs thereby providing these kids especially girls with a life changing opportunity, increasing literacy, relieving the poor of educational cost and taking off hunting pressure on our endangered wildlife heritage.

Challenge

More than 500 kids in remote villages around Korup National Park have dropped out from school after elementary school. Only 1 in 10 kids from these remote villages make it to/through secondary schools. Extreme poverty, remoteness and fear of armed conflict are main causes of drop outs. Girls are exposed to early pregnancies and marriages while boys become hunters or engage in crime thereby worsening levels of crime, STDs, illiteracy, human development and imperils our rich wildlife heritage.

Solution

This pilot scheme is supporting 30 poorest kids from remote villages to attend secondary school in a nearby town. Under joined supervision with their guardians we ensure their safety and full scholarships. Through this we shall increase literacy, reduce early pregnancies, early marriages and prevalence of crime, HIV/AIDS and other STDs . We shall also relieve poor household from the cost of education thereby minimizing hunting of endangered wildlife for bush meat; a major source of income.

Long-Term Impact

Our project will educate 30 destitute kids from remote villages, offer an only chance to education, rise out of illiteracy, unemployment and poverty thereby empowering these kids to make a positive contribution in the development of their communities. Increasing literacy in the communities will improve reception of health, development and conservation messages and minimize current threats to endangered wildlife for species such as chimpanzees to recover for tourism, research and posterity.
