School Support Programme
Enabling bright students from under priviledged backgrounds to enroll in school, stay on to complete the school cycle at all levels and perform well in national examinations.
Poverty is a major cause of poor access to education, retention and completion for girls in sub-Saharan Africa. When families cannot afford to educate all their children and must make a choice, preference often goes to boys.
To address the limited access to quality basic education experienced by children living in rural or remote communities or in socially marginalised areas, SAID identifies and supports severely disadvantaged girls from such areas through a bursary programme.
SAID’s bursaries enable bright girls from poor backgrounds to enroll in school, stay on to complete the school cycle at primary or secondary level, and perform well in national examinations. This financial support covers the costs of school fees, school uniforms, textbooks, stationery and personal hygiene products.
SAID’s bursary programme was initiated in 2016 and has been introduced Awutu Bawjiase in the Awutu Senya.
SAID also extends financial support to boys from underprivileged backgrounds. In 2008, we supported over 5,700 boys with bursaries.
Three students have benefited from SAID’s bursary programme since 2016.
