Here at D’IYANU, we want to inspire others to give back by being an example. With that in mind, we would like to highlight a great organization that D’IYANU supported for the last 3 years, EduCare Benin. We are ecstatic to donate an additional $800 this year to EduCare Benin in support of their mission to champion education and literacy with underprivileged youth in Benin.
EduCare Benin is a mutual aid and development organization specialized in the field of education. They work for the respect of the right to education for all and to contribute to the reduction of illiteracy, a fight that is part of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
The project 'UNE BOURSE POUR TOUS' is a program that aims to award scholarships to Beninese children who do not have stable financial resources on one hand and to promote excellence through excellency scholarships awarded to the most deserving students on the other hand. The program covers the costs related to the children's education fees (tuition, school supplies, uniforms and textbooks).
The scholarship is annual and selected children are supported up until twelfth grade. Children selected in 6th grade are therefore taking care of until twelfth grade. New fellows are selected every year in different regions of Benin.
With this in mind, EduCare Benin is embarking on a fundraising campaign for the 2019-2020 school year. Their goal for the year is to raise US $5,000 to fund the schooling of their already dependent fellows and to help other children still in need through the selection of new fellows. The campaign will be running until September 20th and you can contribute by donating on their website. Remember that every little bit counts in making the difference in the life of a child. We thank you ahead of time for your kind consideration in giving to change a life.
