SAS PROGRAM

Meet the Sponsored Students.


Our Sponsor a Student Program launched on January 1, 2015. Since that time we have been fortunate enough to match thirteen donors with students in Akatim. Donations to this program go directly towards keeping these children succeeding in school. During the past school year, of 13 sponsored students, six ranked in the top 3 of their classes. By giving students school supplies, tuition fees, and uniforms we have drastically increased educational success for these children.
