Sponsor-to-Child (STC) Programme
"Thousands of gifted children in Kenya with a promising future are forced by financial difficulties to discontinue their studies".
The Sponsor-to-Child (STC) Programme is the core activity of the Hilde Back Education Fund. This program provides both sponsors and the sponsored children the unique opportunity to jointly experience the journey of lives being transformed over time through the lasting gift of education
Sponsors are invited to share, not only monetary donations that are used to support the children's education, but to become a part of their sponsored child's life through the exchange of letters. In addition, HBEF provides updates on the child's performance every school holiday (April, August and December) that includes report cards, pictures and letters. Monetary support of $1250 per year or $105 per month can pay for a child's secondary school education for one year.
Persons willing to be assigned a child are requested to fill out the HBEF "Sponsor Commitment Form" which includes ones contact details and other information (optional) that may be of interest to the child to whom one will be assigned. The name and personal details of the child assigned to a sponsor are then communicated once award of scholarships is done by HBEF, during the month of January every year.
