Why sponsor ?

Stella realised that many children in this poor rural area are eager to learn but simply cannot afford to go to school. Having their education sponsored could make the difference of a lifetime to each one of them.

How much does it cost ?

Sponsorship costs just £5 per month. Your money is pooled with all other sponsorship donations to allow for efficient management of funds for each class at Sambel Kunda School and individual children at senior schools.

Where does my money go ?

Your £5 per month will help provide children with school fee's, exam fee's, uniform, sandals, stationary and it also pays for the salaries of 2 nursery school teachers.

What do I get in return ?

You will receive a newsletter twice a year and letters from children in the class showing various activities they have been involved with. You will also have the satisfaction of knowing that your money is making a real difference to these children's lives.

Ways to Pay:

  1. Many people prefer to set up a Standing Order for £5.00 a month for each child.
  2. Others set up a Standing Order for £60.00 a year for each child.
  3. Some write a cheque for £60.00 each year for each child on the anniversary date of starting to sponsor.
  4. NEW! Pay by Paypal, if you do not have a PayPal account you cna still pay through PayPal securely using your debit or credit card.

We expect to have other online payment facilitys before too long but as these incur charges for us the best and most cost effective option for UK based sponsors is by Standing Order.
