Sponsoring a child in our educational program has such a significant impact on their lives, not only from an educational perspective but emotionally, physically and spiritually. The smiles on the faces of our students, who would not attend school without the generous support of our Sponsors, is a joy to behold. It is this joy that drives the staff and volunteers at the school, the volunteers on both the Zambian Board and Australian Committee, and our faithful Sponsors.
There are three programs for Sponsorship:
Student Sponsor Program at Ipalo Christian School (ICS) Along with school attendance Primary Sponsorship includes the following items: Uniforms (class and sports), shoes (school and sports)Textbooks and stationery Nourishing meals daily at school (lunch and morning tea)
Medical needs of students
Counselling and support for families in crisis
Staff Sponsor Program at Ipalo Christian School (ICS) Staff sponsorship can be a partial contribution to a staff member’s salary, or full sponsorship of a salary (cost will be provided upon enquiry). With the increase each year in the number of students, there is a growing need for more staff at the school. In 2022 there will be eight additional teaching staff commencing in January, bringing the total number of staff to 32 (including two volunteers).
Tertiary Student Sponsor Program at various local trade colleges Tertiary or trade sponsorship is done on a case-by-case basis as costs vary for each course. The cost is not usually more than $1,500 per annum, which includes the equipment and materials required to attend the course. All courses are completed within a twelve-month period.
There are two levels of sponsorship for the students at ICS. The Basic programme fees cover the items listed above. The Plus program provides a much-needed pool of funds to meet the emergency medical needs of students or unexpected additional school requirements.
