How Can We Help Graduates?
Children Are People School graduated 40 students up to this point. We will have 6 waiting for further education and 5 more graduating in December when the school year ends. Pray, pray, pray!
Special sponsors funded much of the preK-12 education for the last two years. Education is half of our monthly budget for Pastor John’s group of children.
The graduates have two choices after graduation...
- Go back to South Sudan where war is still going on despite efforts to end it, stay in a UN camp, try to connect with displaced family and maybe find some work.
- Go to the Kakuma Refugee Camp in Northern Kenya only to sit idle in terrible heat with little food and no employment or further education.
Children Are People has not been able to help graduates in furthering their education, but I would like to change that. College tuition is about $1300/year. I know some people are struggling to put their own children into college, but there might be a way to set up an Education Foundation through special funding by individual sponsors, wills, trusts etc.
If you have experience with forming this type of effort, please contact me.
