What the money does
£11 pays the salary of a full time teacher for a month Our Fund supports teacher’s salaries inside the pre-schools & orphanages that we support, or pays for children to attend local state schools. We regularly get new requests to support children’s education.
£18 buys a new set of clothes for an orphan
Typically the orphans have two sets of cotton clothes, two shirts, two longyis, underclothes and trainers. As the children are constantly growing their clothes have to be replaced regularly
£30 is the cost of rice for a child for a year
Rice is the children’s staple diet, the cost has tripled and the quality can often be poor
£50 can usually cover the cost of medication for one child for one course of treatment
Many of the orphans need ongoing courses of medication and ‘prescription’ drugs are expensive and in short supply
Care & Shelter
£225 is the forecast 2008 cost for an orphan
The orphanages provide total care, as well as education, but inflation is rife and the cost rises every year
