The Child Sponsorship Program provides a private education for those who cannot attend the local public school due to over crowded classes. Many of the local churches have private schools available to help the educational burden on Ebeye. We partner with Island Memorial Chapel on Kwajalein and work with all of the schools that are Christ-based by placing students into these schools and providing them with tuition scholarships.
The following are requirements that we have placed on each student to qualify;
- The parents/guardian qualify due to the lack of financial means, ie. widow or widower, single parent, or unemployed
- The child shows a desire to attend school, not all children want to go to school and it is not enforced.
