The provision of food, accommodation, education, medical care and lifestyle for the children and young people at the SWIWSCO orphanage is reliant on charitable donations, a volunteer program and Pam and Collins’ own resources.
This allows approximately $0.85 per child/young person per day for living expenses.
A contribution of:
$10 will purchase the monthly supply of brush/broom sweepers
Alternatively, sponsoring the living costs of an individual child or young person is $37 USD per month ($444 USD per annum)
Educational Fees Sponsorship:
The cost of good quality education is $800 – $1500 USD per annum. Currently, the futures of 3 young people would benefit greatly with educational fees sponsorship. Two of these worthy young women are currently at Government-funded Lower Secondary Schools and the third will need to change to a Government-funded school in 2018 unless sponsorship is secured.
The purchase of a 12-seater vehicle will add to capacity, passenger safety and comfort. At any one time there may be 20 people needing to be at school/work by 8.00am and/or picked up at the end of the day. SWIWSCO currently owns a 6-seater vehicle. Some of the children and young people are required to walk long distances to and from school or a bus stop. They may leave home at 7.00am and not return until after 5.00pm
