Financial support provides a child a chance to start school, stay in school, and succeed in school. School Sponsorships provide the resources a student needs to pursue her goals through education.
What are School Sponsorships?
When you donate to a School Sponsorship, you provide a backpack filled with supplies, a pair of shoes and a set of school clothes, a uniform, and food for the whole family 3x a year! You make a big difference.
Why are School Sponsorships important?
Ethiopians strive to send their children to school, even under very difficult conditions. However, there are a number of barriers that make receiving an education difficult, particularly for those living in rural communities. Families need children at home to work, or they cannot afford to pay for uniforms and basic school supplies that are requirements, even at government-subsidized schools.

“Before, I was sad because my friends were going to school and I couldn’t. I don’t worry about what happens tomorrow anymore. I know my schooling is secure because I am sponsored. I love going to school every day.”
