Sponsorships allow poor children to attend school
You could looked at it as a daring experiment. At Diospi Suyana school, children from rich and poor families learn together. Many of the disadvantaged students have a sponsor who pays their monthly school fees for them. Together with a thank you note, their sponsors in Germany, the U.S. and Peru receive a certificate with a picture of the sponsored child as well as a personal letter from the boy or girl.
For us it may be hard to imagine that most of these children have never written a letter to anyone, let alone received one. Social worker Carolin Klett writes that the pupils were “full of enthusiasm,” even though they had to make a special visit to the school in the afternoon.
The sponsor has a special significance in the life of the child. The message is: “You are important.” This support, of course, creates a high level of motivation in those little ones. More information about sponsoring a child can be found in the menu bar above.
