Do you know how far your $30 a month can go?
We believe that a sponsorship model is one of the most sustainable ways to affect long-lasting change. Many children are unable to attend school simply because their families cannot afford school fees for things like the required school uniform or the pens and books they need. With our structure, your $30 goes directly to the child you are sponsoring and to enriching his or her community. Our goal is seeing entire families and communities changed. This is why we build into your sponsorship two very important components: supplementing teacher salaries and assisting with medical costs.
Many of the schools we work closely with employ incredible teachers who are invested in the students. However, these educators do not always receive adequate salaries with which to provide for their own families. By supplementing their income, we allow them to educate the children free from worry.
Because of the poverty families in the slums live in, they cannot afford medical care for even minor illnesses. Left untreated, these sicknesses often escalate into something more serious. By setting aside funds to assist with medical needs when they arise, we ensure each child is always in their best health, receiving treatment and returning to school as soon as possible.
