We facilitate homework, study and reading groups for local children. This contributes to not only their education but also supports them to stay in school.

Many children come from families who did not get to complete their education because of war or poverty. This strengthens their learning and contributes to them staying in school.
We offer pathways and opportunities into education and training with established local partnerships which strengthens learning and contributes to school retention.

Accessing further education after finishing school for the majority of young people is very difficult because of finances. Providing partial help with either college registration or credits (students pay per subject taken), depending on individual cases, helps a person get out of the poverty cycle they find themselves in.

€40 EUR ($50 USD) for a month will provide a Class Supervisor, we currently need 6 class leaders for the number of children that attend.

Additional educational materials and resources cost approximately €415 EUR ($500 USD) per year. 

Costs for vocational training per person per year depending on course is  €165 to €580 EUR ($200 – $700 USD), e.g. Electrician, Tailoring, Mechanic or Catering. These are 2 year courses.

The cost of sending someone to college/university per year can vary between €500 and €1,075 ($600 and $1,300 USD). This gives them an AA diploma after 3 years or a degree after 4 years.

The direct costs to run our Education Project Study Classes, excluding administration and other non-direct costs, are in the region of €3,000 EUR ($3,500 USD) per year and covers the graduate class leaders.
