Kite Ghana

 Kite sponsored children

In the school year 2009/10, schooling for 66 children is being funded through Kite sponsorship arrangements.

31 children are physically disabled; 35 have special needs.

 

Many disabled children are boarders, while only a small number live nearby and travel to school by bus.

The sponsorship arrangements cover the costs of schooling. These include: school fees and uniform, school books and other materials, transport and food, and accommodation and medical care in the case of some disabled boarders.

 

These costs are currently as follows:

80 euros/year for a child with special needs

180 euros/year for a disabled child

 

 

School Principal Sr. M. Sheila Wiredu acts as treasurer and reports three times a year on expenditure and specific information concerning individual children.
