The Sponsorship Program was the first and continues to be the largest of all of the IOP’s initiatives. It provides sponsorship to students from Kindergarten/Pre school to University levels.
A sponsor may sign up for paying for school fees one year at a time or may give general donation or one time donation or for many years. Sponsorship comes from one individual, family or institutions or two or more sponsors may join and support one student. Through sponsored education, rural youth are offered the opportunity to reach success; many of the IOP staff, including department heads and program managers, are former sponsor students. Other sponsor students are working as primary and secondary teachers, masons, carpenters, tailors, electricians, doctors, community development officers, extension officers, Molecular Biologists and Biotechnologists, Engineers, Textile technologists, and office secretaries.
Over 1,793 students have benefited from the IOP Sponsorship Program and hundreds of other children and adolescents are waiting to be sponsored. The demand is growing. Applications are received in hundreds every year but the capacity to accommodate all is minimal. Thanks to the generous individuals, groups, families and foundations paying for school fees and other related needs. They are the treasures to the many beneficiaries.
We are still having many children in the waiting list. Contact the nearest IOP Office to get the details and the description of students who are in a very high need of educational support.
May God bless you all for choosing to sponsor a child. You have made the Divine choice
Sponsors are encouraged to support the same student throughout their primary, secondary and university studies (if applicable). Read below to get more about the cost and process of sponsoring a student and to watch videos featuring former sponsor students.
Go together; sponsor a child throughout his/her education.
