Educare Fund supports high school education of young women in Lesotho whose families cannot afford to pay all the fees. The aim is to enable bright young women to gain access to higher education.
Educare Fund works in partnership with poorer families in the payment of school fees in order to enable hard working young women to complete high school education. The partnership aims to re-affirm the commitment and self-determination of these families in the education of their children, particularly girls who often bear the responsibility of caring for their siblings from an early age. Educare Fund also aims to revive the spirit of sharing within the community especially among girls and women who are at the centre of caring in society. State funding for high school education does not reach all needy families and Educare Fund works to support those girls that are not eligible for this source of funds so that wherever possible they too can access higher education including university level. We believe that even those who do not achieve a higher level of education than high school will benefit from the process and may be in a better position to improve their lives and possibly those of the children they may have in the future.
Educare Fund aims to:
- To work in partnership with parents in any way deemed charitable to provide for the education of young women in Lesotho by contributing primarily towards secondary education fees.
- To support the young women in their role as carers for family and community by contributing towards resources to enhance this role
- To raise awareness of the particular difficulties faced by some women in Lesotho in gaining access to advanced education and the impact this has on their communities
