Higher Education Scholarships - Supporting the center’s older hill tribe children into higher education
Through our Home for Disadvantaged, children we provide accommodation and support for hill tribe children aged between grades one and six. Once our children become too old to live at the center, our scholarship program ensures each child has the opportunity to continue studying in higher education (usually at boarding school). We do this by helping them choose the right school for them, providing all additional school fees (outside Government contributions), living expenses and counsel when required.
Successfully completing higher education is a key way our hill tribe children can go on to build a better life. It means that when they go out into the world of work, they will be as educated as other applicants. However, it is not always easy for our children to stay in higher education due to the family responsibilities that can come from being a hill tribe child. Our focus for 2012 has been to reduce the number of children we see leave higher education before completion and encourage them to finish their studies
Target:                 -  Hill tribe children (including Akha, Hmong, Karen and Lahu) living at the   center who have completed grade six in their local school

Objective:             -  To enable grade six children living at the center to study in higher education
                               -  To fully support children in higher education under the center’s care with the housing, clothing, food and equipment required to help build a brighter future
