Throughout our partner countries, local St Vincent de Paul Society members select students from families in need to be supported by the program.
They receive a scholarship for one year and the money donated contributes to their education needs. Poverty is a vicious cycle. In many Asia Pacific countries poverty means talented individuals lack opportunities. One of the programs strongest and most attractive features is that administration costs, funded by the Society are kept at an absolute minimum, so nothing is deducted from the $70 for such costs. One hundred percent goes towards the student’s education needs (including course fees, uniforms, books etc) for one year.
