DSC01412 Secondary School Students on Scholarship

The Secondary School Scholarships (for orphans) program is currently in its third year, and is being funded by private donors in the United States (i.e. not self sustaining, which is being assessed for future). There are currently 38 students being sponsored and all are achieving highest ranks in their class. Once in school, the student is given a volunteer partner who ensures that that student’s needs are being met (food, supplies, study time, mentorship, etc.). A nice byproduct is that when orphans are students, they are not getting into trouble or getting pregnant. Updates and full transparency are provided to donors at regular intervals.
