The IHF Continuing Education Program exists to assist youth enrolled in our sponsorship programs, who have consistently achieved academic excellence and exhibited a strong desire to further their education.
Through this program we help to provide these teenagers with the precious opportunity to pursue vocational training and even college, so that they can break the vicious cycle of poverty.
The Alternative to Continuing Education
For many impoverished teens in developing countries there are not many options after graduating from high school. For many of them, the alternative to continuing education amounts to working for low wages and/or getting married and raising a family.
Even the most astute high school graduates are often forced to live out this alternative because their families cannot afford the financial costs that come with sending a child to vocational school or university.
In many cases, your donation is the only hope a sponsored youth has of continuing their education.
The young people we serve have experienced more tragedy and hardship than most will ever experience in a lifetime. However, through it all, these intelligent, inquisitive, and resilient young people are somehow inspired to have big hopes and dreams for their futures.
Your donation to the Continuing Education Program will give your sponsored teen a once in a lifetime opportunity and will empower her or him to turn their dreams for the future into reality.
