SPONSORSHIP

FFSC programs are run in areas where the inhabitants are mostly migrants. The parents of the young children are generally poor laborers who work for hire or engage in unstable jobs such as selling lottery tickets or other small items. Consequently, some children have to help their parents collect waste plastics and others sell lottery tickets or newspapers themselves. Although the parents are aware that it is important that their children receive an education to build a stable future, but not all of these families are able to provide the necessary means for the kids to go to school.

FFSC seek financial support for children who are facing hardships in their lives. You can help us and make a difference in the children’s life by sponsoring one child or a group of children. With your help, the children will be able to have a happy, healthy, and protected childhood.

 

SPONSOR the studies of:

A single child

With your aid, a child will be able to study at one of our centers or join the regular program at a public school until (s)he graduates from high-school, or higher education range.

 

A group of children or students

If you want to help a group of children or students, you may do so as an individual, or as a group with your relatives, or colleagues or friends. Our experience has shown that this particular form of support has helped lessen the burdens of families facing difficult situations. Additionally, sponsoring also shows encouragement for a lot of students to thrive better in school.

 

  • What will a child receive when you sponsor him/her?

Scholarship awards normally cover only the cost of the education and not any living expenses.

$30 USD/month/pupil on average will help cover school fees and related expenditures such as uniform, school supplies and health insurance for the school year as well as extra-curricular programs, a health check and health treatment for common diseases, and group activities and training sessions organized for the parents.  In some special cases, transportation and living fee may also be provided to the student.

 

  • How does FFSC choose these children to be sponsored?

Each student, with the help of an FFSC social worker, must complete a scholarship application form that includes personal information, family’s situation, and study conditions. The student has to agree to the terms and conditions of FFSC’s scholarship program. They must request a certain amount to cover the study costs per school term.  The staff at FFSC conducts the selection process which may include an interview with the child and the family at either the office or a home visit. Each application is individually assessed based on the personal situation of the child and social criteria. (Click to view children’s application here)

 

  • How do we follow up with the sponsored children/students?

All the scholarship children/students are expected to achieve good results at school and are required to send their study reports to FFSC office on regular basis.  The children’s parents must attend monthly meetings at one of the FFSC centers. The children also must participate in training courses organized for them and attend quarterly meetings to receive their scholarship and exchange life values and skills.

 

  • How will FFSC help the benefactor and the child keep in touch?

Each year, the benefactors will receive a photo and a letter (translated based on the sponsored mother/father’s language) with information on the child’s progress such as annual updates about their grades or quarterly newsletters about activities at the child’s school and community.  Also, on request, arrangements can be made to visit the child or group you sponsored.
