This project seeks to raise $8,000 each year to help 100 students with learning needs and disabilities to be prepared for school. The challenges of special needs children are great and even further challenging when families are unable to equip their children with uniforms and books so they can learn.
All it takes is $1 a day for the education for a child in the D.R. But for many families it is a struggle to afford therequired school uniforms, supplies and monthly fees. The Student Tuition Expense Program makes it possible for the children to attend school every day.
By paying school fees for the children of NightLight employees, this project will not only help these kids get an education, but also reduce the financial burden on their families so that the women do not feel the need to return to the sex trade to provide for their children.
The project will raise the educational level for numerous children and improve the overall standard of living for their communities in rural Thailand.
The Obed Day Center provides schooling and programs for the Roma gypsy children. The Student Tuition Education Program provides funds to the Obed Day Center for classroom supplies, snacks, a daily lunch, a backpack and clothing and classroom utilities.
