Since 2010 Shine has supported over 30 students through our Bursary Program which offers student support as well as the school fees, transport, and items such as books, stationery, uniforms, and groceries.
This support has been life-changing for children and young people found in some of the most deprived villages in the region, who did not have the help at home.
The support has meant so much to students like Innocent who with much potential became the first young man in his area to gain a place at college. Moving through the education system has many challenges and is very expensive. Donations received to support this area of Shine’s work are very important and greatly appreciated.
Shine recently began the areas first Afterschool club and we currently see over 40 children attend on a daily basis. We are grateful to supporters in New Zealand who helped to provide key text books which children do not have access to in school ....more details here
