Mission Fund Appeal for Student Sponsorship

In the last ten years the Mission Fund has taken hundreds of young boys and girls out of poverty by providing for their education. Please consider sponsoring and helping.
15 Feb 2024
Union news

The Mission Fund has been a steadfast supporter of children's education for years, facilitating their attendance at secondary schools and now extending access to technical colleges. Over the past decade, these sponsored students have progressed to higher education and employment opportunities previously out of reach without the generosity of past college alumni.

Many of these graduates have paid it forward, sponsoring their siblings and other family members, creating a cycle of empowerment within their communities. Formerly vulnerable to malnutrition from recurring droughts and violence stemming from food shortages, these children have transformed into self-sufficient individuals, providing crucial support and relief to their families and villages.

Below, we present candidates eagerly awaiting sponsorship for both secondary school and technical college. With contributions starting at just €700 per year for secondary education and €450 per year for technical college, students receive essential support including accommodation, meals, clothing, and educational materials.

If you're interested in making a difference, please reach out to the Mission Fund at missionfund@rock.ie. One of our committee members will be delighted to discuss sponsorship options with you.

Let's meet some of the students seeking sponsorship:

Students 1 to 12 are coming from a village called Kavuthu which was totally destroyed by floods a short while ago. Twelve mothers were swept away while trying to cross a river. Four bodies are yet to be retrieved
