Sponsorship Work

This is the time of year when most of the education sponsorship work is done........there is plenty to do all year round, but just before the new school year starts is the busiest time.

We have over 80 students in the scheme and we need them all to be ready to start school at the beginning of September.

For each student we need to have uniforms made, pay their fees, provide text books, provide a bag with school supplies including: ledgers/exercise books, ruler, pens, pencils, rubber, pencil sharpener etc etc.
We will also sit down with each student and their guardian to go over last years school report, to ensure they are attending regularly and identify any areas they might be struggling in.

The BECE (Basic Education Certificate Examination) that the students sit at the end of their third year of Junior Secondary School has been postponed this year because schools in parts of the country hit by the health crisis have been closed.

At the moment the WASSCE (West African Senior School Certificate Examination) which the students take at the end of Senior Secondary school are due to go ahead in September.
We have a few students sitting the WASSCE this year and our hope is that, dependant on their results, we will be able to find them places in training centres......with a view that at the end of this they will be able to find employment. We very much hope that their sponsors will continue to sponsor the students though their training.
