Sponsor a child

Sponsorships are a type of donation. They are the financial backbone of sustainable income for the school. You are contributing not only to a specific child’s welfare, but also helping us pay for teachers, food and school supplies, making it possible for students to board at school, to purchase textbooks and on and on.

Sponsors make an implicit commitment that if at all possible, the sponsor will remain with the child, supporting him or her throughout his or her education. For some that may be only primary school; for others the path may eventually lead to higher education. You will change a child’s life. Please see “THE CHILDREN” to read about just a few of the children needing a sponsor.

Sponsorships are not for everyone, and we welcome general donations. These may help us provide two eggs a week for the children, or to buy them a pair of good school shoes, or to pour a new cement floor for the girls’ dormitory rooms or to purchase blankets for the kids. Please feel free to contact us: +1-312-316-7386 or
