What are estimated costs to send a child for a year to school?
On average, it costs US$70 / term to send a child to school. There are 3 terms in each year. High school is more expensive than Elementary School and fees vary between schools. US$210 / year / child is an estimated average.
Where will your money go?
Your donations to our Quarters4kidz fund will be used to pay school fees for our Zimbabwe 8. Annually, any money raised over and above the required amount to send these 8 children to school (approximately US$1600) will be put into a #buyafamilyahome fund.
While schooling is our primary aim, through Quarters4kidz it is our hope to raise enough money to buy a home for a family in Zimbabwe (US$12,000). The home would be rented to a family in need of affordable and safe accommodation. The rent would in turn pay to send a child to school (Hopefully 2 or 3 children – These would be children in addition to our Zimbabwe 8) and eventually buy another home. This process would then be repeated. After 10 years, the renters will own the house outright. This would be an opportunity that the majority of Zimbabwean families could never even dream of.
Here’s hoping that this is the start of something much bigger than misplaced change.
