End Child Poverty, working together with its partners, has partnered with local agencies to provide education scholarships in South Sudan, Kenya, Pakistan and among the Syrian refugees in Lebanon. Pupils benefit from this partnership by receiving uniform, books, school fees contribution, among other material items. Through this effort we are also gradually building a pool of support organizations.
More than 100 children have so far benefited from this programme with more than 16 joining the University. An enduring quality of these partnerships is developmental impact on these participating children and the agencies. In all the situations, we have found that the assurance of an education transforms the child and the agencies to be aspirational, to look and plan into the future and thus acquire a real handle via which to overcome their current situation.
