SCHOLARSHIP PROGRAM oHoH
About the Scholarship Program oHoH
oHoH is involved in five schools with their Scholarship Program oHoH (hereafter called SPO). Most students are from Deurali school and Mahendra school but we also have students in three other schools.
We started the SPO because we wanted to change as many children’s lives as possible. Children who don’t have the opportunity to go to school on a daily base. Some children could only come to school when their family had money to pay the school fee. Some children didn’t go to school at all. Their families were simply too poor to pay the school fee and the child had to help in the field or at the local factory to earn some money for the family. Orphans from rural areas even have a worse life. They hardly ever go to school and not many people care for these children. oHoH is trying to improve those lives by providing them with a full scholarship so these children can go to school to improve not just their own lives but also the lives of their beloved ones.

Most of our students are between the age of 4 to 14. This means from ‘nursery’ up to ‘class 8’. After class 8 our scholarships program stops for these children unless the sponsor tells us / indicates he/she wishes to keep sponsoring the child. This means that the sponsor price will go up. We can not afford secondary school with the prices we ask. We want to keep it affordable so many sponsors can join our SPO. After all, a high price has a deterrent effect, which is why we opt to stop sponsoring after class 8. However, the child will at least have a completed primary school education and therefore already has a head start on many other children who haven’t had that opportunity. But this also depends on the sponsor, he/she can decide to keep sponsoring and as a result give the child even a bigger chance of a better life.
