“Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world.”
― Nelson Mandela
Through the generous donations of our supporters, Point of Prevention provides individual scholarships to Tanzanian children who are in need of funds to assist them with reaching their educational goals. Individuals supported by POP are often impacted by HIV/AIDS in some way, including orphans or children living with HIV/AIDS.
The scholarships that Point of Prevention provides to these youth covers the cost of their school tuition, room and board, as well as school supplies. The Tanzanian school system differs from that of the United States and other developed nations where the burden to pay for schooling is on individual families. For the children that POP supports, who most often have no family, there is no one to pay the tuition, and the children miss out on obtaining the critical education they need to have a successful future.
It costs approximately $1,000 per year to sponsor these children and grant them access to what comes free to children in the United States.
