CC17 - #04 - SI Student Sponsorship
The need for support is great as the Government education system in the Solomon Islands is under resourced, schooling is not free, nor is it compulsory. Less than 50% of children attend primary school with only 30% of children enrolling for secondary school and only a 'lucky' few go on to Tertiary/University study. The literacy rate is only 18%. S.W.I.M. has contact with many Primary and Secondary schools and seeks to resource children in obtaining their education as much as possible. Your donation will help us provide tuition fees, school supplies and school uniforms.
