Your support helps the school to survive

In answer to the questions we are regularly asked, it seems that a reminder of what sponsorship is might be useful, especially how your sponsorship money is used.

The sponsorship proposed by the Foundation is one which covers the school in its entirety. One which represents a double advantage: an advantage for the children because there is no form of favouritism of one vis-a-vis the other; an advantage for the sponsors who remain free to choose the amount and duration of their sponsorship.

Although some opt for quarterly, biannual or annual payment, the sponsorship amount is generally paid monthly. This allows the Foundation to know the amount they have at their disposal each month.

Sponsoring is an important gesture for the life of the school. It is your sponsorship that covers all the fixed costs involved in running the school. Namely:

  • the salaries of the teachers and other employees
  • the school pick-up charges
  • the books and school supplies (notebooks, pencils, paints …)
  • the meals: breakfast as of the 6th year and snacks for all the other children
  • the children’s uniforms (trousers and tee-shirts in the school colours)
  • the school maintenance charges

The Foundation takes total charge of the schooling of the children, who mostly come from very underprivileged backgrounds, thus ensuring them better conditions to follow the high quality education provided by the school.

The donations, and in particular donations from companies or from local collections, are reserved for expansion work or fitting out the school (construction, diverse alterations, …).

With an ever increasing number of children, we are in urgent need of new sponsorship. The search for new sponsors has become our first priority.

We thank all those who support us in our action and who allow these children from the other side of the world to have access to an education, thus opening the doors to a better life.
