1850 kids going to school
kids4school now has about 1650 children registered and attending school. These children attend remote village schools where there is extreme poverty. Currently they attend Hombolo, Gawaye, Nzasa, Kitelera, Mchemwa, Nzasa B and Bwawani School areas. The children attend local government Primary Schools and for those who can pass the National Transfer Examination there are also Secondary Schools for them to attend.
Students who are registered on the sponsorship program get the uniforms and books that are necessary to attend school. They also are provided with a daily meal at the kids4school feeding stations. They attend schools that have benefited greatly by the wider work of kids4school and its sponsors – classrooms have been renovated, new toilets blocks built and water storage tanks constructed to provide schools with clean and safe water.
As part of the program, kids4school are investing on an academic level by employing and training classroom assistants at schools. This is part of the ongoing and expanding strategy to assist the schools towards increasing the pass rate of the Standard 7 National Examinations. This is a contributing factor in many of our sponsored children being able to move on to Secondary Schools.
Sponsorship is not expensive – in fact 19 cents a day, but gives these children a future and their families a way out of poverty.
Letters from home
The children are always delighted to get letters and cards from their sponsors. While there is no postal service because of how remote the villages are, kids4school representatives visit the schools. It is not easy for them to reply and that is why we arrange a letter to be written at school and we send them out to sponsors as and when we get them.
