Educational Support for Orphans & Vulnerable Children

Educational Support for Orphans & Vulnerable Children

We support hundreds of orphans and vulnerable children in Guyana to receive adequate and consistent education throughout the year by assisting with any challenges preventing them from attending school.

The Situation

Around the world, orphans and vulnerable children are often neglected and receive little assistance to complete their education. Additionally, these children need support, such as transportation and food, to attend school regularly and reach their potential.

There have been a rising trend of referrals to our center; 1026 referrals in 2019 compared to 573 referrals in 2014. Challenges that have given rise to high death rates in child cancer patients:

  • Lack of cancer awareness

  • Lack of cancer expertise

  • Lack of enough cancer treatment centers

  • Inability of patients and their families to afford cancer treatment

In Guyana, economic and financial challenges have pushed many families into poverty. With a poor quality of life, many children do not have access to good quality education.

    How you can help

    Through our program, we assist orphans and vulnerable children by ensuring we alleviate any challenges preventing them from attending school. We provide children with access to school bus transportation every day, stipends to purchase meals and medication. We also ensure that the children receive new school uniforms and seasonal gifts.
