Academic Studies Fund

Government support of at – risk youth ceases at age 18.  

We nurture and support our children for years to ensure that they are scholastically equipped for university.  Throughout school years, we emphasis the importance of scholastic success.  Research and the compressive field experience compiled over decades of our successful nurturing of at-risk children since 1969 have led us to believe that scholastic success is the key to real change in the lives of at-risk children.  To that end we implement an intense professional afterschool tutorial program.  Our children become scholastic achievers, they develop positive learning habits and study skills and do well in their final high school exams.  Their self-esteem flourishes and their motivation to continue their studies expands.



University graduates are more equipped for future success than non-graduates, that´s a given. An academic degree is certification that one has escaped the cycle of despair

For those starting our as at-risk children growing up in a children´s home, like our graduates, this achievement gives them a feeling that they have been certified to succeed.  They can face any new challenge. This must not be forfeited because of financial obstacles.

Young adults between the ages of 18-21 cannot do it on their own.  Most depend on their parents for support.  Our graduates have no parents to fall back on.  We must continue supporting them, as families do.  We are their family.


Call to Action

Governmental support for children growing up in Children´s Homes ends at age eighteen, when they complete the mandatory 12 years of school.  We have treated these children as family since they walked through our doors.  We are committed to standing by their side until they are able to truly be on their own.  To enable our graduates to become university graduates we must provide financial aid.  We are dependent on dear friends like you to ensure that they can reach their full potential with a higher education.

University graduates are more equipped for future success than non-graduates, that´s a given.  For those starting our as at-risk children growing up in a children´s home, like our graduates, this is even more important than with most young adults since they have no family networking system to help them land a good job without a diploma.  For our graduates, the university diploma is an official "seal of approval” that they are certified to succeed.  

Young adults between the ages of 18-21 can´t do it on their own.  Most depend on their parents for financial and emotional support.  Our graduates have no parents to fall back on.  We must continue supporting them, as families do.  We are their family.

We bring our children to universities´ doors- we must ensure that they are able to cross this threshold.
