Providing educational support and assistance for community development

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.

Children identified for support are those whose parents are not able to provide adequately for them, leaving the children at risk of malnutrition and illiteracy. Sponsorship enables children to attend school where no educational facility exists in their region.

A portion of sponsorship is used for community development.


Bonga Rural Flood Relief (project officer: Emma Lewis):


Massive floods devastated areas of Ethiopia in 2007 with many homes lost and families displaced. This project provided blankets and assistance in rebuilding homes.
In 2010 this project assisted re-roofing the Bonga Rural Kindergarten after strong winds caused damage.
