Sponsor a student

How does the Program Work?

 

Starting from 2015, every year the best students of the secondary school are granted a scholarship to attend high school and eventually university, that they keep having good results. Besides the school costs (enrolment, books, etc.) the scholarships cover transport, board, food and accommodation costs.

The program is coordinated locally by the secondary school director, who reports regularly on the progress of the students. In addition, these students can become part of their village’s education and sustainable development programs. They are offered opportunities to participate in other projects (e.g. médiathèque, school maintenance, support to local companies, etc.) in order to get professional experience and to support the younger kids’ education.

 

Why sponsor a student?

 

We consider education a fundamental investment for the local kids, their families and the local community. We believe this is the only way to make local development sustainable. We want the children to attend not only high school but also university. As the school system is similar to the French one, the last 3 years of high school have to be done in a separate school establishment on a different island and the university in the main island. Due to the increasing number of students, we need an increasing amount of resources every year.

Do you want to sponsor a student?

With only 35€ per month (tax deductible*) you can give one kid the chance to keep studying and make them very happy.

As a sponsor, you will get regular reports with the kid's school results, pictures and letters. If you decide to sponsor a child, inform us by email about your participation and create a direct debit of €35/month.

* Subject to the different countries law
