Once all of the resident children at the Gerladina Orphanage & Education Centre had attained sponsorship, our organization had the means to offer financial support to more children within the surrounding community. With the understanding of the importance of an education, we sought out families who needed assistance with schooling costs for their children. The Neighbourhood Children program was then established, providing an education sponsorship program for children who still had surviving family members, able to care for them, but who did not have the means to attend school. This valuable program enables children to complete their basic schooling, providing school uniforms, text books, mid-day meals and shoes, for those who would otherwise be required to abandon their learning and start to work to support their families.
