Does each child have just one sponsor?
The current cost of educating the children at the Daisey Academy (for grades 1-8) is $360 a year. Our goal is for each student to be supported through as much education as they are able to gain. The costs raise significiantly once a child moves to high school. Local high school tutition is approximately $2,000 a year, vocational schools about $3,000 a year and university $6,000 a year.
In addition to educational costs we provide for the housing, food, clothing and medical care for the orphans.
Therefore the expense to fully sponsor a child in primary school is $150/month. When you sponsor at the $150/month level we match you with one student. Don't worry if that is more than you are able to do! We offer many sponorships opportunities so you will be sure to find one that works for you! Click here to see the options:
