When pupils finish at Natemwa Learning Centre, they have little choice other than to attend the local government school which suffers from overcrowding (60 to a class), poor quality teaching and unsafe buildings. However, for those with particularly high academic marks, there is another option. Kufushi Boarding School delivers far superior education. Unfortunately, due to the levels of poverty, they will not be able to afford the fees without assistance.
Bana Tandizo's Pupil Sponsorship programme is designed to reward the children that do well at school, provide an incentive for others to do well, and open up a future full of opportunity. Sponsors often find that they also benefit from the experience enabling them and their families a unique perspective of helping people from disadvantaged backgrounds.
what does it cost?
Sending a child to Kufushi Boarding School fees currently costs £35/month. This cost includes all food and accommodation in term time, and provides initial uniform. Sharing the cost with friends is possible and can make for a fulfilling social experience. No deductions are made from the fee for expenses or management of the programme.
