The program aims to provide support to students for primary schools (ordinary level), secondary school and college. The department works closely with the development sector in the municipality, the Singida Children and Community Centre Outreach Africa and the Compassion International by the Anglican Church.
- Students are supported with school fees for A level, College and private students, uniforms, examinations fees, school security contribution, remedial tuition, desks, school maintenance/construction, stationary and transport for boarding school students.
- 780 students were supported for education between 2005 and 2010, when the programme was still under the home-based care programme, before the programme was officially launched.
Number of students supported for education in 2017was 102
Some students fail to get good results as they follow peer groups in the streets. Later they
end up being trafficked. Many students lack proper nourishment and so cannot
concentrate on their studies.
This education program is funded by Christlicher Entwicklungsdienst (CED), and in October 3 staffs were invited by CED to celebrate 25 years of CED foundation as well as fund raising in Munich, Germany. It was wonderful to witness the enthusiasm and generosity of our donors there.
Other donors of Faraja students group are Misean Cara, Dundalk Credit Union, Ireland, Roundfort, Ireland, MMM friends and families.
