This program seeks to build grass-root connections between students in the west and the poorest of the poor students overseas. It costs only USD $32.00 a month to sponsor a class of approximately 15 to 20 students (about USD $1.50 per student a month). These classes teach the fundamentals of education in order to provide a way for these impoverished children to rise out of an unheard and unseen life. Children are taught English, Mathematics, Urdu, Science and Computer.
The class sponsorship program consists of English, Maths and Computer classes that are taught by permanent and volunteer teachers at each center. The program was designed and created in a way which allows children to attend public school after completing their education uptil 5th grade from SEED schools. SEED will also assist and provide financial support to those students who are willing and eager to get more eduaction at least a high school certificate.
Dollar for dollar, the class sponsorship program has the greatest long term impact on the children of IHF. The cost to educate each student is approximately USD $1.50 to USD $2.00 per month and covers the volunteer teacher’s monthly per diem of USD $50.00-USD $60.00, electricity costs of the center, and the salary of the center’s director.
