Onto our EAO project we have enrolled a total of 30 children, young girls and boys aged 6-16. Children enrolled onto the project are not discriminated against on any basis aside from the family’s financial situation, their residing in Afghanistan only, and their age (to ensure they are of school age). The children and their families receive a monthly increment of their sponsorship amount, enough to cover the costs of school supplies and clothing, and any residual can provide the family some support to replace the income they needed to send their child to work for in the first instance.
Our EAO children’s academic progress and attendance is monitored throughout the project, with close liaison between our NC colleagues on the ground and the schools and families. The children’s eligibility for the programme is also continuously confirmed throughout the 5 years, including the family’s financial situation and the child’s minimum attendance in school.
ACW and NC collaboratively will ensure that the project is delivered as publicised to their donors. The 100% donation policy on several of our fundraisers and events will be upheld and all the money raised will only go towards the beneficiaries our EAO project.
We handle images and videos of our sponsored children with sensitivity and will only post images where permission has been sought by those in the media material.
We have already given hope to many families and children involved in our EAO project, and enjoy seeing them where they should be; safe within the confines of a classroom.
