We have come across situations in which young girls of school/college age give themselves to prostitution in order to earn money needed to pay college fees. Unfortunately, once they get into prostitution they find it difficult to leave because the money they earn from prostitution is never enough to pay college fees.
We have decided to give people the opportunity to sponsor young people aged 16 years old and over for three years until they complete their college education. Your donation of £30 a month will contribute towards their college fees and they will receive additional benefits, like health and dental checks, counselling needed and medical help if we can afford it.
The students will also benefit from vocational training alongside formal education, so they learn skills which will enable them to know how to make money and be financially independent.
Many of the young people in our projects come from difficult backgrounds, caused by poverty and neglect. Your sponsorship will enable them to receive an education and offer them the chance to escape the cycle of poverty which could otherwise hold them back.
As a sponsor, you will receive a photograph of your sponsored student. For more information about them, including their living situation, their family (if there are any) and what their interest and ambitions are.
You will have the opportunity to build a positive relationship with your sponsored student who will write to you to update you on their progress. We also encourage you to support your student by writing letters to them. The sponsor will receive a photograph of a young person and information about them. You will be able to write to them straight away and build a relationship with your sponsored student. We hope that through such a relationship both the sponsor and the young person will be enriched through it. The young person in this situation often has had a troubled life caused by poverty and lack of basic essentials. Many of them struggle to improve their lot in life by getting some kind of education, but often end up living a miserable life or end up in prostitution.
If you would like to make a difference in a young person's life, please do not hesitate to contact us by clicking here and we will link you to a young person in desperate need.
