Sponsor a Student

There are four different ways to sponsor one of our Students

Sponsoring our Primary School Children

Children at the local state funded Nyaishozi Primary School are supported through our "basic needs" sponsorship programme. We send £40 per child every year to buy each of these students a school uniform, shoes, school stationery and soap.

Sponsoring Students at Ruhinda or Rugu Secondary School

Children at the local state funded Secondary Schools in Ruhinda and Rugu are also supported through our "basic needs" sponsorship programme. We send £120 per child every year to buy each of these students a school uniform, shoes, school stationery and soap.

Sponsoring Students at Nyaishozi Secondary School (private)

As state education is now government funded, it is only in desperate circumstances that we place children in the local boarding school.  It costs £600 a year to provide each of these girls with a protected learning environment.

We currently have 4 students there, see Bibiana's Story

Sponsoring Students at Kagera District Vocational Technical College

KDVTCis a vocational technical college which offers uneducated young adults the opportunity to train in a worthwhile trade – giving them the skillset they need to make a living for themselves and provide for their immediate family.  These two year courses are intensive and have a good reputation within the local community.  Their success rate is high.  As a result, the fees are above average, compared to other types of education sponsorship.  It costs £800 per annum for one young adult to attend KDVTC.  St Andrew’s Secondary School Leatherhead kindly sponsored our first students, Naiveth Almachius and Efrat Shubira, where they studied Tailoring and Car Maintenance.
