Sponsorship Program

For as little as $ 20 a month you can be that person that changes a child's future forever. 

This program was started in 2020 in order to make a lasting impact on the lives of the most vulnerable children in Gashora. Once a baby is too big to be wrapped on the mother’s back, children are often left unattended in the mud huts as the mothers (mostly single) leave early in the morning to work on farms. This is a tragic situation and leads to all kinds of developmental problems. This is why JHA decided to open the first free preschool in Gashora. We all know that an independent and productive life starts with education. And early childhood education is critical especially in the lives of these underprivileged children. 

 

By sponsoring a child you help create a better future for the most vulnerable children. Sponsorship helps to foster long term, sustainable change by providing access to basic necessities such as food, health care and empowers our children, their families and communities to break the cycle of poverty. Children who don’t have the opportunity to go to school are at higher risk of increased gender-based violence, unplanned pregnancy, trafficking, child marriage and unemployment.

 

Both the preschools now remain open 365 days of the year, providing care and food daily as the children often will not eat on days that they are not in school, thus never breaking the cycle of malnutrition.

 

Here are all the options available to you. All rates are for one year.

 

  • $ 220 preschool includes daily meals 365 days a year, 

  • $ 270 primary school  includes daily meals 365 days a year

  • $ 320 secondary school  includes daily meals 365 days a year

You can choose to add:
 

  • $15 health insurance 

  • $120 to help with extra food and clothing ( $ 10 a month)

 

If every child in Gashora was sponsored, stunting and malnutrition would be eliminated and ongoing education would provide each child with the start in life that everyone deserves.
