Marathon foundation -The high school Mentorship program
It is a well known fact that learners in informal settlement struggle to pursue their studies, due to the hostile conditions of their surroundings. The parents are more concerned with issues of survival; ensuring that there is food on the table and little support is offered to these learners for their education. Such conditions could condemn these kids to perpetual poverty.
This program is a response to that need;In the words of Nelson Mandela “education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world” Therefore this program aims at giving an opportunity to high school learners an opportunity to excel in their studies. This is achieved through weekend classes, holiday study camps, providing learners with necessary study material and stationery.
The program has a Mentorship aspect, in which the students are taken through workshops which seek to inspire them beyond their present situation and also equip them with necessary life skills which will make them succeeded. The learners are taken to weekend camp outs where they spend the weekend out of the informal settlement and are taught important life lessons.This program has potential of changing the lives of these children and their families but to do that we need your support, and your donation could go a long way to change someone’s life.
