It costs less than 5 Euros a month to support a child through CINI’s "Educate a Child" program.
For just 120 Euros you can support a child’s education for the entire two year program.
WHAT WE DO
The Educate a Child program concentrates on children aged from 5 to 16 years in deprived urban areas. It focuses on getting children into education and keeping them there. The money you give will be used for school fees, uniforms and educational materials. Our work in education builds on the foundations laid in ensuring adequate nutrition and health status throughout the critical period of the child’s growth and development that take place during the first 1,000 days of life. Experience has shown that even children who may have achieved appropriate nutrition and health standards, if not sent to school, may end up in child labour, trafficking, early marriage, or exploited and abused otherwise, thus perpetuating the vicious cycle of poverty, ill health, malnutrition and illiteracy that trap deprived communities. We strive to identify children who have dropped out of school, or at risk of leaving it. We partner with school authorities and teachers, school committees, families, children’s groups and local elected representatives to map out-of-school children, motivate the school system and families to get them back to school, and prevent dropping out. We promote the creation of Child Friendly education by upgrading the school environment, building separate toilets for girls and introducing education methodologies that are child-centred. When you donate to the “Educate a Child” two year program, you are linked to a particular child and will receive three reports about his or her progress over the two year period: first, some background information about the child; then a drawing by the child after 1 year; and finally, a report at the end of the program. However, the money you donate will also be used to support many more children as CINI works in local communities to highlight the importance of education and bring about a change of attitude in people who feel that a working child is better than an educated child.
