Helping children in poverty get an education - Children’s Helpers Worldwide

Helping children in poverty get an education - Children’s Helpers Worldwide

CHW_Refugiu_Tutoring_4.jpgIn the village of Tarlungeni, in Brasov County, Romania, the ‘Roma community’ mostly lives in poverty and suffers from social exclusion. A lot of the children there do not get their basic educational and healthcare needs met; and it was this problem that Children’s Helpers Worldwide are aiming to solve.

 

They decided to set up a project to support 19 children with their education, providing them with skills that will help them become flourishing, successful adults.

 

They provide regular tutoring sessions for the children by working in partnership with the local organisation, Refugiu. Refugiu holds tutoring sessions for children every weekday and offers other social assistance when necessary, such as helping parents to enrol their children in school and ensuring the children have medical check-ups, and that the teenagers register for their identity documents.

Here at Inventshift, we’d like to support these children, as we believe in eradicating poverty through education. The next step in this project is to allow their programme to continue for another year.

The programme will enable the children to catch up with their school work, improve their school attendance, have materials and clothes for school; for the teenagers to register to have identity cards once they reach 14; for their healthcare needs to be met.

 

Total amount needed: £1,518 - by September 2017

CHW_New_Life_Isaac.jpgIn Ghana, life is tough for young adults when it comes to education. There are lots of children who have grown up in a New Life’s children’s home, and want to study further, but do not have the resources to do this and would usually not have families who are in a position help them. Children’s Helpers are looking to change this by giving support where they can to allow those children the chance for a better future.

In partnership with New Life, their aim is to assist Isaac (pictured) to continue to study Mechanical Engineering at Cape Coast Polytechnic.

His tuition fees have been paid for this year, but he needs the next years funding, along with other costs like his fees and his course materials.

The aim of this project is to equip Isaac with the education and knowledge, to provide himself with a more positive future.

 

Total amount needed: £710 - by August 2017 and again in August 2018
