Education is the way out of poverty. The families we work with know this, but many live far away from schools and lack income to pay for their children to attend. We provide ways for those in need to learn.
Education provides children with opportunities to eradicate poverty, gain a voice in their community and experience a better quality of life. In areas we operate, thousands of children are unable to attend school.
YIDP helps isolated communities build classrooms and schools. In places where children walk for miles to the nearest school, or meet outdoors under a tree, a classroom provides shade from the sun and shelter from monsoon rains.
It’s hard to imagine, but in most developing countries, school is not 100% free. Poor families struggle to afford school fees, uniforms, and school supplies. YIDP offers scholarships for primary school, high school, campus and helps parents with young children pay primary school fees as well as orphans. (Only children in need to be awarded)
