Student Assistance Program

Through our social workers field surveys we identify a number of students who have the desire to attend school yet their social circumstances would not allow it. This would include the financial incapability of their parents or guardians as well as other social hardships.
The students, their families are then interviewed by our social workers to assess the qualification for enrollment in the assistance program.

Once accepted and enrolled then we help support their school tuition fees, boarding fees when applicable as well as school supplies.

For female students of qualifying age we help provide them with sanitary pads and some upkeep funds when available.

All students fees are realized and paid through your charitable donations. Quarterly student progress reports are available to donors upon request.
