Sponsor for Suzan wanted
Suzan (14 years old) lives in the community of El Kobania. She lives with her mother and four sisters. Her father died a year ago, leaving the family destitute. He was an agricultural labourer (fellache) and his two eldest daughters had to drop out of school to help him work as labourers and contribute to the family's livelihood. Suzan (the second youngest of the girls) attends secondary school and loves to study. She wants to become an agricultural engineer one day.
Sponsor 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!
