Education Interventions

Independent research proves that Compassion’s sponsorship programme gives children a life-changing foundation of primary education, vocational skills training and a mentor to help them plan for their future. Our Education Interventions enable children to go even further.

Donate today and you can help provide greater education opportunities for young people including scholarships for secondary school and university, vocational training for parents, plus credit and saving schemes for vulnerable families. 

The reality...

  • Only 52% of secondary-aged school children attend school
  • 250 million young people globally are illiterate
  • The number of children not in school fell by 50 million between 1990 and 2014   

With your help we can...

  • Keep young people in school by offering scholarships and secondary school fees.
  • Provide extra textbooks and resources which support young people in overcoming poverty.
  • Give children and young people access to powerful educational resources such as libraries and computer labs.

You can help young people like Bedarlin go to college 

In the Dominican Republic, 18-year-old Bedarlin’s biggest dream is to graduate from college and buy a house for her mother. With support from Compassion’s Education Interventions, Bedarlin is working hard to make this dream a reality.  

Now, Bedarlin’s biggest dream is to graduate from college and buy a house for her mother – so she doesn’t need to worry when it rains. With support from Compassion’s Education Interventions, Bedarlin is working hard to make this dream a reality.

Bedarlin’s college tutors helped her to take an aptitude test to see which courses would best suit her. She was thrilled to discover that Physical Education was an option. “I used to play volleyball and loved running in my free time. I am passionate about everything that has to do with sports, and I also love teaching,” she says.

Bedarlin’s mother, Demetria, is hopeful that her daughter’s hard work at college will give her opportunities for a brighter future.

“Without the project, we would be poorer and live with less hope,” says Demetria. “With the help my daughter has received at the project, she has been able to take courses that I would never have been able to afford. Thanks to the project, she has been able to develop what God had already put in her.”

Thanks to this programme, my dream of becoming a nurse has become a reality. I am very happy, because before I felt that I was not valued. My life has changed. I am more useful to my community and my country which are in great need of medical professionals.

Sophonie, Haiti

I used to envy those that were learning computers and it was my prayer that I would also be competent in computers someday. Nowadays I arrive early at the centre during programme days which is very different from my prior attendance. I have learnt that there are hidden abilities of children that one cannot know until an environment has been created to unleash the potential. And that is exactly what has happened here.
