What to Change the World? Sponsor Education.

November 12, 2014

Every year The SOLD Project admits twenty new students into our scholarship program: and these students need sponsors! The scholarship program, just one part of our multi-faceted prevention program, acts as the ‘bridge’ to building relationships with our students and their families. By offering a scholarship to a student the cost of school is unburdened from the family, and that student then becomes connected to the Resources, Awareness and Mentorship that SOLD offers. In other words, scholarship, or education, is the first step towards prevention.

A student receives a scholarship for as long as they continue to study. The Thailand National drop out rate shows that 50% of students drop out between grade 6 and 9 – a statistic that The SOLD Project is working hard to change.

I was recently encouraged by this study showing the radical impact of child sponsorship through Compassion International. Child sponsorship works: and we are excited to invite you to join us in changing lives by sponsoring education to prevent child exploitation.
