Gift Of Hope
The cost of education in Liberia is very high. Education is highly inaccessible to majority of Liberian children. Due to a weak state provision of educational services, private and parochial schools count for over 80% of primary schools in the country. These schools must charge steep tuitions in order to cover their teachers’ salaries and operating expenses. For low-income families, school expenses will account for approximately 40% of their annual in- come.
Children who are not in school often must work to help keep their household running or care for their younger siblings. Many families, orphans homeless and street children lack the money need- ed to pay for education. Many families lack the money needed to pay for school fees, tuition, transportation, uniforms, supplies and food. 80% of our students are able to pay their daily low school fees in our school system. But the other 20% are unable to do so. This is where you come in to assist these struggling children to attend school.
Change Agent Network’s Gift Of Hope School Sponsorship Program provides you the greatest opportunity to sponsor the education of a child in Liberia to receive the education they so much need to become useful and productive citizens of the world.
Change Agent Network (CAN) and partners initiated the Gift Of Hope Sponsorship Program for needy and underserved children in Liberia to enable them attend and acquire excellent education in our Christian schools in the country. CAN’s schools encompasses Nursery through grade 12th.
