Income Support for Orphan Child Education Scheme (funded by Muslim Hands int. UK)


To provide income that meets educational needs for the orphaned children, who are being cared by older people, fixed deposit accounts are opened for them and every month 100 birr is deposited, right from the day the child is enrolled in school. This will help the child after the graduation from the sponsorship scheme at the age of 18 years for either higher education support or as a startup capital for small income generative activities. This project started in 2008 and will continue until all target children complete high school.
