Student Sponsorship

What happens to our students when they leave? Answer: They struggle to continue to get an education unless we find them sponsors and continue to support them.

It is with much regret that we have to say goodbye to our students at the end of 8th standard (at 13 years old, if the child has attended school since nursery class and progressed each year). In the future we would love to extend our curriculum to include 9th and 10th standards, so that all our students complete their basic matriculation with us. (Up to the equivalent of G.C.S.E in the UK) Unfortunately, until such a time as we can buy land and build a bigger school, this will continue to be the case.

At Gamru School we care a great deal about all of our students and try to help them for as long as possible, even after they leave. Due to a lack of funds and exposure, it has only been possible to extend our help and support through sponsorship to students who have left in the last 3 years, (since April 2011.) We are proud to say that since this time we have managed to find individual sponsors for each student who has continued in their education for the next 2 years of their study up to 10th standard. Thank you to all those kind people who have already sponsored a student until 10th standard.

However, each year more and more students leave us and more and more sponsors are needed. From April 2014 our first group of sponsored students will start the next stage of their education and will need further sponsorship. It is crucial that once started, we continue to sponsor and support them in whatever way we can to guarantee them the best chance of a continued education and successful, happy future. Each level of education requires more money, as school and college course fees, as well as course books become more and more expensive. We have some very bright and hard-working students at school who are committed to their studies and who are motivated to do the best they can at school and beyond so as to better support their families in the future.

Could you be someone who can offer their personal help to one of our students? If so, you will receive a letter from your student, as well as a photo. When exam results are available you will receive a progress report by email to let you know how they are getting on. It is also beneficial to send them a photo of yourself and some basic information, to help the student feel a connection with you, as this proves to be a very motivating factor for them. Our students also understand that they will only continue to be sponsored if they are dedicated, work hard and pass their exams each year.

Here is a breakdown of the costs involved in sponsoring a student, at each level.
