Further Education Fund

With our Brighter Future and Shining Stars children growing up rapidly, our main focus is to ensure that when the time comes for them to leave our guardianship after completion of their class 12 education, they are ready to face the world and stand on their own two feet.

And the best way to achieve this?

To ensure they have access to the best education and or training that we are able to provide, as in the immortal words of educational reformist, John Dewey “Education is not preparation for life, education is life itself"

We want to secure funding so that all the children under our guardianship have an opportunity for further study – not just the ones who finish school first.

It’s a Himalayan-sized challenge and we need your help.

At the moment we have 10 children undertaking their 2 year pre-university or vocational studies, one on a 3-year nursing course, and another 21 children to follow in the next 5 years.

The 2015-2016 academic year will cost in the region of US$11,500.00.

For all 32 of our children to undertake post school, pre-university study, we need to fundraise US$70,000.

To help our children fulfil their education dreams, you can...

  1. Make a donation
  2. Set up your own fundraising page to raise money on our behalf
