Sponsorships

CCF provides need-based scholarships to boys and girls attending secondary and vocational schools in Pader district. 

CCF currently sponsors 45 children attending “O-level” (the equivalent to grades 8-11 in the USA system) and 200 girls and boys receiving vocational training in various activities such as carpentry, building, welding, tailoring and knitting. 

When students graduate from their vocational school, CCF provides them with start-up material and tools that will enable them to begin a small business. All of the students who have graduated have come together to form small community business groups.

 

 
One group of 4 boys, formed a carpentry shop in March 2008. They have made 2 big beds and 6 tables and sold furniture that has helped support their families. 
They are very busy with work and are very optimistic about expanding their activity and making profit.
