Every year, with your generous support, we award scholarships to help students overcome financial difficulties and continue their education, and to enable child-labourers to enrol into schools.
Our scholarship program enables the most talented yet disadvantaged young students to reach their full potential by providing financial and academic support throughout their college education. The financial support includes payment of full tuition fees and all educational expenditure. Currently, in its sixth year, the program has thus far enabled 65 students, a majority of them girls, to attain college education, pursue their academic goals, and become responsible members of the community.
In 2017, in partnership with the ROYA Mentorship Program, we launched our Kids Off the Streets (KOTS) program in Afghanistan. The program provides financial assistance to child-laborers, enabling them to enrol into schools and access educational opportunities. We are supporting eight school-aged children from impoverished families to enable them to break the cycle of poverty, and enrol into schools. The support covers school enrolment costs, monthly school fees, as well as English language and computer training.
Akademos Supplementary Learning School:
Akademos Supplementary Learning Class is a jointly run program by Akademos Society and ROYA Mentorship Program. The program provides free access to supplementary learning for disadvantaged children and child labourers who are unable to access educational opportunities elsewhere. More than 60 very needy children are currently attending three specially designed classes, located in Kabul and Bamiyan, to improve their literacy, numeracy and other social skills.
How you can help:
With your support, in 2019 we will support even more students to attain college education, enable many more child-laborers to enrol into schools, and attend supplementary learning classes.
Of course, none of this would be possible without your support and encouragement. Your donations enable these young girls and boys to continue their education, support their families, equip themselves with skills and knowledge and become responsible members of the society. Your donations enable Akademos Society to expand our programs and continue empowering the youth.
Donate today, and encourage your friends, family members, and peers to support. Every bit counts.
