Our sponsorship family now totals 35: 18 Secondary School (Form 1 – 4) students; 7 High School (Form 5 – 6) students, 3 University Certificate students; 5 Vocational students; 1 University Law student and 1 University Medical student. Because of the rising costs of university studies and the problematic government higher-education loan process, EdPowerment now must say “No” more than ever to so many deserving young people. Our Discovery Sponsorship Contest that accepts one new female and male Form 1 student each year is being suspended for two years.
This summertwo students wrote compelling letters (shown here with edits for length and privacy) and came in person to plead for our help – not to begin secondary school – but to be able to continue secondary and higher education, having already proven their motivation and academic strength.
Please try to enlarge your viewing screen if necessary to read their letters - the best we could do !
