    how to budget it All government education is fee free but students needs money for books shoes uniforms and in cities transport Many of our students have no families and feed themselves we help them with funds to furnish and rent a room A basic scholarship is now 13 50p a month but disabled students and those renting rooms get much more often up to 25 Those students who pass Grade 10 but are unable to get a free government place often go to private colleges where fees are charged dependent on the course which we pay In addition to this financial support all our students get love care and guidance to be able to manage themselves and contribute positively to society To our knowledge no other charity student sponsorship scheme works like this where your donations may often be pooled to help a community or school We have built up and refined this system over 16 years and we feel confident that it works well 2013 SUMMARY Summary Student State During the year 2012 13 During the year we had 197 full time scholarship supported students 57 boys 43 girls of whom 16 are registered disabled 6 students graduated with degrees Architecture Mechanical Engineering Computer Science and Law 7 students received Diplomas as Accountants Auto Mechanics Draughtman Nurses and Pharmacists 1 student received a Certificate in catering All these students have now left our scholarship scheme with a modest job seeking allowance to find employment which most already have 7 students left the scheme for a variety of reasons Some failed for the second time to get promoted and were ineligible to continue at school some moved away some dropped out of their own accord Where students are withdrawn it is generally by mutual consent and is not done
