EDUCATION SPONSORSHIP PROGRAMME
CongoAction has run a child sponsorship programme for 12 years and from the success stories we have had, we believe it filled an important need over this period of time.
However, it became apparant that the system of chosing one child over another to benefit from education was unfair, causing jelousy and ill-feeling. We also found out that the teachers were not being properly paid again causing bad-feeling and distress. As a charity promoting children's education Congo Action believe that the best way to provide equality in education for all the children was by providing the best available teachers, facilities and equipment for the school. To this end we decided to finish the child sponsorship scheme and replace it with an EUCATION SPONSORSHIP PROGRAMME where all the children at the school would benefit.
The money raised in Education Sponsorship pays the teachers as they are still not paid by the government, provides for teaching equipment, replacements and repairs as well as for extreme hardship.
