Our Education scheme was launched in the summer of 2013. We know that by helping the orphans to educate themselves they will ultimately be able to confidently emerge out of their cyclical poverty and see a better future for themselves and their families. Though public schools are funded by the government in Iraq, families who rely on sponsorships and donations for their existence often struggle to send their children to school due to their inability to afford stationery costs, uniforms and transport to and from school.
The resultant effect is that orphans often don’t go to school or drop out. Some are made to work to support their family and thus the cycle of poverty and strife goes on.
By raising money to pay for uniforms, stationery, transport costs and tuition, we can ensure that orphans have the chance that every child deserves – access to an education and thus better future prospects for themselves and their family. Donate today and choose ‘Education Support programme’ in the donation type box if you would like to support orphans with their educational needs.
Last year saw tremendous results for many of our pupils. Many of the orphans we supported benefited particularly from private tuition and were hence able to do very well in their exams. One year’s tuition will cost £300 per subject.
Here we outline the costs the orphans face in receiving their education so you can choose how you wish to help them:
Stationery and clothes:
£25 per year for primary school students.
£35 per year for secondary school students.
£45 per year for university students.
Tuition and general allowance:
£300 per year for tuition.
£1,500 per year for a general allowance.
