Support 10 more girls in high school in Lesotho

The Big Idea is to increase the number of girls from poor families who are not eligible for state funding to complete high school. We know that many of the girls have high aspirations and are capable of getting to university level. Poverty should not prevent them from fulfilling their dreams.

  • Need

    Need

    The problem the project is trying to solve is lack of education for bright girls in Lesotho who their parents are unable to pay their school fees or exam fees. Educare Fund is trying to offer financial support to girls in high school so that the fees become affordable.

    Solution

    Educare Fund works in partnership with families who already have girls in high schools in various parts of the country by topping up the school fees for each girl. The charity also pays for examination fees for any of the girls who are in years that require the taking of exams for progression to subsequent high school years.

  • Aims

    Aim 1

    The first aim is to continue topping up the schools fees that parents have not fully paid.

    Activities

    » We carry out various fund raising within each year. Such as sponsored runs and morning coffees. The success will be reflected by funds raised.

    Provide a record of school fees paid within the year.


    Aim 2

    Identify academic resources such as books needed and how this can be acquired.

    Activities

    » Schools' library provides books through lending. Project pays the lending fees. But schools with no library the projects supports children buy books.

    Provide a detailed record of books bought and the money paid to school libraries for lending books to children.


    Aim 3

    The project to support pay for exam fees for those children writing their final exams.

    Activities

    » Continue with fund raising activities. Plan Car Boot sales within the year.

    In the past we have kept in touch with our students and their progress, this will continue to be the process.
    The project will produce feedback sheet for the students regarding the support they received this will be used to demonstrate the long term changes the project has brought about.

    Risk

    The risks that can influence the success of this project could be;
    1. Not being able to identify or find runners for the planned marathons.
    2. Risks of coffee mornings or other activities not able to raised desired income.
    - Previously when faced with this problem we have identified several volunteers and were still able to get runners in chosen races.
    - Previously planned more coffee or other methods of fund raising to be able to meet our target.

    Reporting

    The donors will receive a report of the income and the expenditure of the money raised and how it was spent.
