Our program seeks out children who have the ability to succeed but not the means. The number of children enrolled has grown quickly. When school opened in January of 2007, 60 sponsors had been recruited and a corresponding 60 children were on their way with school uniforms, shoes and school fees paid. The program’s selection criteria has grown consistently more rigorous and students in the program are required to attend schools we select. Although we don’t own or operate any schools, we partner with schools that have a demonstrated track record of delivering strong academic outcomes. At the end of 2015, the program had 322 children in primary and secondary school, another 38 in post-secondary programs and 10 alumni for a total of 378 students served.
We are proud of the success our students have created. Read their stories of their transformed lives. We add new stories frequently–you can stay up to date by following us on Facebook.
