Sponsor A Child's Education
Sponsoring a child provides the continuity of impact that is needed – which is impacting the growth and development of children. It brings hope to his or her entire community.
The key area of empowerment that we focus on here is education. Funds you provide will attend to the key indicators (Academic, Psychosocial, and Medical) of a child’s educational development.
By becoming a sponsor you will provide desperately needed opportunities to children with incredible potential. You will be making a personal investment, building a relationship with your beneficiary and his or her family, and joining a family of “life-givers” around the world who share your commitment to change the world, one child at a time.
Providing educational support is a tested and proven way to impact lives by providing the vital knowledge and skills that the child needs to grow up, become independent, self-sufficient, and able to contribute to their community, national and global development.
Humanity & Health Foundation’s aim is to strategically empower lives in Africa by providing educational opportunities and resources. Our focus is to strengthen self-reliance so that individuals, families, and communities can create positive change in their own lives. We have made it easier than ever for you to join us in empowering lives.
Frequently Asked Questions
Sponsoring A Child Education - Investing In A Sustainable Future
Education is one of the priorities of governments and also of the Humanity & Health Foundation (HHF). In many instances, due to persistent and conflicting demands that families face daily, the education of children is given lower priority in terms of family needs. In some instances to help ensure that the children stay in school, we ensure that school needs are taken care of by directly paying for school fees, sewing uniforms / distribute school supplies, etc.
