Half the children from the orphanage are able to attend a secondary school. High schools and colleges are expensive though. One semester costs around 60 euros per child. In addition, the student have to live on campus because these schools are too far away from us. We provide a double room, the kids receive coupons for the cafeteria and a pocket money (50 cents / week), so they do not differ too much from the other students. Of course we also take care of the appropriate uniforms and other clothes. Since it is not allowed to share the school supplies, each student needs his own books, folders, etc. With a sponsorship or donation of 250 € or CHF 300.-/year you secure a place for the students. We are very, very proud when a child graduates with flying colors. In 2014, our Gracelyn graduated successfully. We are really proud!
