This has been one of Africa Surgery’s most engaging programs. For a donation of only $200, Africa Surgery supporters can sponsor one child’s primary or secondary education for one year. The donation will cover:
- school fees
- uniform, including shoes
- supplies (pens, pencils and paper)
Sponsored children reside mostly in the Freetown, Makeni and Lungi areas, where Africa Surgery has a suitable field organization.
Due to our limited manpower, we can handle a maximum of 100 sponsored children per year. At present, we have 92 children actively sponsored and regularly attending school. 8 children are on the waiting list to become part of the program.
Sponsors receive a photo of their child, plus a “thank you letter” at the end of the school year.
If you are interested in sponsoring a child, write to Africa Surgery. Please, specify that you are interested in the “Sponsor a Child” program.
