These students can be sponsored by either the Breakfast-Included Sponsorship Program:  The fees are $12.50/month which covers a nutritious fruit breakfast, a basic school uniform, basic school supplies and a small stipend toward the school's operating costs. These sponsorships provide vital funding for the child's and school's needs. In return you will receive a photo and letters from your child each term, knowing that you are sending your child to school with fruit in their tummy and a nice uniform and supplies.  

Basic Program Sponsorship: While breakfast, uniform and school supplies are not included, these sponsorships provide an opportunity for children to exchange letters with their sponsors and provide a stipend toward the school's operating costs. To participate in the Basic Sponsorship Program, choose a child from the list and make a donation of at least $25, $35 or $50, whatever you are comfortable with. You can donate more if you like, knowing that the funds will go toward offsetting the school's operating expenses.
