The actual education costs of your godchild
€25 of your contribution of €30 per month is used to pay the actual education costs of your godchild. This includes:
- registration fee
- school uniform & shoes
- school bag or backpack
- school books & school supplies
- transport (if the school provides transportation)
- meals (if the school provides meals)
- use of a computer (if the school has computers)
You support your godchild from the beginning of primary school until the end of secondary school. The average duration of a child sponsorship at Cunina is 10 to 12 years.
Would you like to continue supporting your godchild after secondary school? You can do this by providing your godchild with a Cunina Scholarship.
The remaining money is used to fund local educational projects
The education costs are different for each country and can even be different for each region. Cunina uses the remaining money of your contribution to fund educational projects in the country of your godchild.
It is very important to Cunina that the remaining money also benefits your godchild, albeit in a more indirect way. We use it to build class rooms, renovate buildings and guarantee that the file of your godchild is locally managed.
A small part of your contribution is used to keep Cunina running
Only €5 of your contribution is used to manage your child sponsorship file and to pay the operating costs, which include postal charges of the letters to the South, administration costs, maintenance of the computer network…, of Cunina in Belgium.
Cunina consciously keeps their operating costs as low as possible in order to be able to spend the contributions where help is needed the most. Our annual operating costs are barely 10%. In fact, NGOs are normally allowed to reach up to 20%.
