In central Africa, if a close family member dies the culture requires that the brother receive the children who are left behind. In a place where it is difficult for many families to nourish and pay school fees for their own children, it is nearly impossible to also provide for adopted orphans. Many orphans simply are not able to go to school.
To meet this need, Encompass creates partnerships between churches or individuals in North America/Europe and local churches in the CAR, to provide three years of foundational schooling for orphan children within the church and surrounding village. North American/European partners provide funding for school supplies, teacher salaries, and one meal per school day.
- $4,000 funds a one-year orphan school partnership at one school
- $4,800 will help provide two motorcycles for the Regional Coordinator
