DOC & DOL - Jimma Child Sponsorship

Posted by Bert Michels on Jul 23 2012

Development and Welfare and Relief

Children in this program are aged from pre-school to teens, and are often in orphan siblings groups or in homes where poverty and illness are seriously limiting the capacity of parents to provide adequately for them, leaving the children at risk of malnutrition and illiteracy. 

 

A portion of the child sponsorship goes toward providing food and educational support to disadvantaged children, many of whom would not be able to attend school without this assistance.

Another portion of the sponsorship is used for community development projects, such as building of schools and housing, provision of a tutoring program to support the children succeed in school, and assistance toward tertiary level education for older children.
