Our offices have just compiled the lists of all the new students accepted into the scholarship program, and each of these students needs a sponsor.
There are 2 ways you can help:
Sponsor a student for $25 a month. Bright students often wish to continue their education, but without financial means, end up working in the plantation fields. A scholarship of $25 a month ($300 a year) provides tuition, transportation, 2 uniforms, and supplies for one student in need. To give back, the student will write at least 2 letters per year and will do volunteer work in the community.
Volunteer to visit an adult Sunday School class with student profiles. This is so easy, anyone can do it, and the impact of sponsorship ripples through every group that hears about it. Get your profiles here!
Our scholarship program grows or shrinks based directly on the number of sponsors; I challenge you to take action and make sure that the program grows in 2012. Every student sponsored has the chance to earn a degree, develop leadership skills, and create a relationship with a sponsor that reminds them they are loved; could that sponsor be you?
