2020 Enrollment roll-out
Give a man a fish, he eats for a day but teach him how to fish and he eats for a lifetime.
This sentiment can be applied to many facets of life and can also be applied to education. If a child does not go to school, he/she becomes heavily dependent on their parent or guardian for essentially their whole lives. Whereas if a child is given their basic human right of education, they are able to morph into well-adjusted individuals who are able to not only creating a better future for themselves but for their families as well.
Response Network currently has 611 children enrolled on our sponsorship program. This is a program where vulnerable (single or double orphans) children are provided with school fees and other school requirements such as books, bags, uniforms, etc. in order for them to access education that they may not have otherwise been able to access without RN and our partner Academic Work of Sweden as well as several other generous individuals who sponsor a child or two.
Parents/Guardians of kids going into first grade have been coming through to the office to apply for sponsorship. After the application process, a designated team conducts home visitations to assess whether the candidate meets the criteria for sponsorship. These home assessments are currently being conducted.
