World Literacy Canada- Sponsor a Scholarship Today!
WORLD LITERACY CANADA- Sally Swenson Scholarship Project World Literacy Canada's Sally Swenson Scholarship Project makes a difference in the lives of hundreds of Indian children living in poverty. Each scholarship of $300 annually covers the costs of school tuition fees, books, school supplies, transportation, after- school tutoring, and opportunities to participate in special events throughout the year. BECOME A SPONSOR! Despite the obstacles of poverty, the children who receive a Sally Swenson Scholarship are eager to learn and work towards the future. Your donation of less than $1 per day makes their participation in the program possible. Currently, approx. 200 promising students living in poverty are enrolled in the program. Our goal is to raise $15,000 to send 50 children in India to school. Your Donation- EVERY DOLLAR COUNTS! • Please donate as much as you can! We need  a total of $15,000 to send 50 children to school for one year.  SAMPLE DONATIONS: $33- Cost of uniform $33- Cost of books $242- Cost of basic tuition fees. With a $300 donation, you can change a life! A full $300 donation will cover the costs of school tuition fees, books, school supplies, transportation, and after school tutoring for one student for a year. If you donate $300, you will receive a photograph and some basic biographical information about this child, and in addition will be mailed an annual update on their progress. Please provide your email address and phone number, along with shipping address to receive the update.
