Sponsor a Child is our legacy sponsorship, which provides $44 a month to enroll a child in the Bright Futures Academy. As a sponsor of a specific child, you will receive photos of your sponsored child and occasional correspondence/information about your child.
Support a Child is a program to help supplement the rising costs being incurred to fully support each of the ~275 students at the Bright Futures Academy. With excessive 30% inflation rates in Ethiopia over the past few years, it now takes just under $100 per month to cover a single student’s tuition, school expenses, food, & health needs. In conjunction with the Sponsor a Child sponsorship, this $50/month program helps cover the funding gap per student.
Awake & Alive is a champion for educating children in Ethiopia, Africa. The children and families served by Awake & Alive in the Kechene slum (located in the capital of Ethiopia, Addis Ababa) are among the poorest and most marginalized people in Ethiopia. Some call them cursed, Awake & Alive calls them blessed.
