Education provides children with opportunities to escape poverty, gain a voice in their communities, and experience a better quality of life. However, worldwide – more than 120 million children are unable to attend school.

 

Project Aim

The scholarship program aims at enabling deserving students from underprivileged backgrounds to attend school on a daily basis in order to gain the knowledge needed for them to complete elementary and high school.

Project Details

Through education, the children hold the key to their own futures. By attending classes, gaining experience and being introduced to the world, they are better equipped to meet the challenges in life and to shape their own futures.

From school start in June until school ends in March the students receive a scholarship covering their school needs.

They will be provided with:

  • Daily School Meals
  • Uniforms
  • School Shoes
  • School Bag
  • School Supplies
  • Medical Check-Up
  • Birthday Surprise
  • Points System

+ possibility of inclusion in other projects and activities, such as tutorials, health incentives, school transportation service and seminars.

The points system is a way for the children and parents to acquire items necessary in their daily lives, but through a give-and-take-method. All scholars and parents may save points through attendance and school results, which can be exchanged into goods.

Each scholar is supported by an individual sponsor, and for a one-time contribution a scholar’s schooling is secured for a whole school year. A sponsor can expect to receive an introduction sheet of the child being sponsored, as well as updates and pictures twice per year.
