Frequently asked questions
How does our nursery school sponsorship programme work?
Before we support a new school we assess the ability to provide financial support in the long term. Through sponsorship, we undertake to provide each school with £1,800 per year to cover the core programme of education, food, clean water and extra-curricular activities. Any additional funds provide equipment and other resources.
What does nursery school sponsorship enable?
Your sponsorship of a nursery school goes a long way and helps with supporting the following:
- Nursery education for up to 120 children
- Two salaried teachers
- An annual teacher training programme
- A school overseer
- A school committee made up of teachers, parents and local officials
- Subsidised school uniform
- A daily meal of maize porridge for each child
- The availability of Lifewater safe drinking water for each child
How much does it cost to sponsor a nursery school?
By Western standards it costs remarkably little to impact the lives of a whole community in rural Africa. Just UK£150 per month enables us to set up and sponsor an entire nursery school of up to 120 children and their teachers.
Sponsors receive feedback and reports from their schools and have opportunities to visit and for other involvement should they so wish.
We just ask for a minimum of a two-year sponsorship commitment to provide financial assurance to the school as they consider future planning.
