Sponsor for Achmed wanted
Achmed (13 years old) lives with his parents and four siblings in Naga Garmele in the El Kobania municipality. His father is unable to work due to a severe back injury and receives a small pension, but it is not nearly enough to support the family. As a result, the family is very poor and dependent on help. Achmed attends secondary school in Aswan and is a very clever boy who wants to become a doctor one day to help his village and his family.
Sponsor wanted for a child from a poor family in Southern Egypt
Did you know that in Egypt most boys from poor families have to go to work (as labourers) after 6 years of primary school to contribute to their family's livelihood? And that girls hardly have a chance to get a secondary school education, but are married off as early as possible so that they are provided for?
AdmaCUM started 17 years ago to place poor children (boys and girls) with German, Austrian and Swiss sponsors. With the monthly school sponsorship (minimum fee from € 100.00), the sponsors enable their sponsored child to attend school (school clothing, books, writing utensils, school meals, extra tuition from qualified private teachers, etc.) and promote their school education and further training. This ensures that the children and young people can attend schools or secondary schools and thus receive an important educational foundation that will later enable the particularly intelligent to study at a faculty. Thanks to an AdmaCUM study sponsorship, a girl from a poor family has already been able to study law at a faculty and now works as a lawyer.
The better and more comprehensive the school education, the better the later chances for a good profession (also for girls) and a good income. In this way, young people can make a decisive contribution to improving the living situation of their families and raising the standard of living. The position of young women also gains in prestige and self-confidence as a result.
That is why child sponsorships are so important!
