What is the cost of sponsorship?
Your donation of $20 per month or $240 (two hundred and forty dollars) per year will sponsor a child.
How is the money used?
- Five percent (5%) of your donation is used towards general and administration (G&A) expense. Admin expense pays for rent, utilities, stationary, staff, web services, and, marketing.
- If your child is enrolled in a private school, we pay school fee against the bills in two installments.
- In case the child is enrolled in a fee-free Government school, your donation will pay for the school kit, uniform and one education trip a year for the child. In addition, the child is assigned to the nearest SAC Learning Center for extra tuition help.
What are SAC Learning Centers?
Children enrolled in Government schools need additional tuition help provided by our SAC Learning Centers. The Centers run six days a week with help of three teachers between 4-6 PM, who cover core subjects. Your donation pays the teachers salary.
What should I expect from the Sponsor a Child (SAC) program?
