How to Sponsor a Child

How much does it cost to sponsor a child?

  • £30 per annum for 8-16 year olds taking them up to their SLC (Senior Leaving Certificate – equivalent of GCSE).  Each sponsored child gets the opportunity to go to school with a new school uniform, shoes, school bag, exercise books and stationary items and has access to sanitary education.
  • £60 per annum supports 16-18 year olds (A level equivalent) paying for books and additional tuition.
  • £150 per annum funds tuition costs for 18+ studying for a Bachelor Degree at Gorkha Drabya Shah Campus.
