This is just a short post to all of our “current” student sponsors, and to any “new” sponsors who would like to send a child to school via our ministry.
We are at the end of another successful school year, where many of the students finished in the top 10% of their classes. As always, we have had a few students stop schooling for various reasons, but we will inform individual sponsors of those changes very shortly.
Please keep an eye out for an email from ourselves regarding your sponsorship details.
If anyone would like to sponsor a student via our ministry, we have a new College fund with 10 students in it who need varying levels of support. People are welcome to donate small amounts of money into the fund and we distribute the funds to our College students as they need it. Please consider it, giving a young person a chance to complete College level education, means giving that student a chance to change their life. We are not asking people to sponsor a student all the way through College, just a one off or perhaps a monthly donation that goes into the fund. There are 10 students in College right now, but more will be added in the future as other students graduate High School.
This year we are not accepting any new students into the Sponsorship program in either Elementary or High School. The reason for this is simple maths, the costs of College far out weight previous years of sponsorship and in the next 3-4 years we might see 50-60 students graduate High School, with many of them going to College. So instead of taking on more new students, we are going to focus on getting the students we have through College.
Thank you all for your kind support.
Mark and Christine Pedder
