Rise and Shine
For a further year, we are starting the RISE AND SHINE Scholarship Program that has been running since 2015, allowing several kids in Nosy Komba to continue their studies and open the doors to a brighter future for them and their families.
The program provides top Secondary School students with a scholarship to go to High School and, eventually, University. This scholarship covers the costs of tuition fees, books purchase, food and accommodation and commuting.
Furthermore, as part of the program, these students are given the chance to be actively involved in the development of their village, where they come back during weekends and holidays to help out in the library, teach younger children to read and carry out other educational activities planned with the local teachers.
To sponsor our students, we would ask you to collaborate with 35€ per month*. All these funds will go to the field and, as a godparent, you would also get regular reports with the kid's school results, as well as pictures and letters.
To sponsor a child, you can contact us here or by email before 25 December 2021.
In January, we will present to you the kid/s you are supporting and from then on we will also give you regular news on the child's progress.
With your help we will make more and more kids rise and shine as they deserve.
Thank you for your support!
* Per student. Tax deductible - Annual receipts can be provided if requested for tax declaration.

Our volunteers pay their own expenses and there are no administrative costs, every single euro that you donate will be invested in the projects running in Nosy Komba. You can chose the project you wish to support. For example, with 35€ per month you can bring a student up to university.
