Aid2Africa: Sponsoring a child’s education
Sponsoring a child at Waymarks Education Centre keeps a child in school who would otherwise miss out on an education. While we could make specific links to specific children we do not like to create favourites among the children who need our support. All are treated equally.
We have a number of people who make monthly donations through standing orders to the charity. This money is used to pay for school fees. The ad hoc giving is used to supplement this but mainly to provide for other expenses. These include the purchase of text and reading books, building work to provide classrooms so more children can be offered the chance of an education; The provision of toilets and clean water; Sustainable projects that generate income so schools can become independent of the charity for the future day to day running of the school.
Our experience and educational background enables us to help schools look beyond the hand to mouth existence and for the first time look at proper accounting and budgeting. When they see the reality of their situation and a way forward their response is usually one of relief and joy at the fact for the first time they can see the light at the end of the tunnel when previously they did not even know they were in a tunnel!
Regular giving is the backbone of our work and provides the most sustainable resource there is; Educated children. If you feel that this is something you could do just drop us an email and we will send you the forms needed to set up a standing order to the charity’s bank account. Every penny donated goes to help the children in Africa. All administration costs are paid from donations made specifically for that purpose. The charity is run and administered by a small team of volunteers who take no fees or expenses from the charity whatsoever.
Thank you for expressing an interest in making a real difference to the lives and life chances of the children in Africa.
