Future Pathways

Future Pathways fund

You have been with me for more than 10 years. Thank you for walking with me and for your help. When I was very little, our family was very poor and had lots of difficulties. I remember one day, two uncles came to my home and said someone would provide support for me. I could not believe.

At the time I questioned was it real that there are kind people like you?

thought to myself that I must work hard and be successful to repay your help. Beside working hard is also my way to repay my grandma and my dad.

What I learnt from books is nothing compared to what you taught me. You make known to me what kindness is, what is gratefulness which are worth more than 10,000 books! If I have a chance.

I will certainly go to see you to learn how such kind and loving people look like. I want to thank you in person.

Future Pathways is a program to help students who have worked hard through their junior levels of education to continue into higher education.

Many children work really hard in their secondary education and then achieve an entrance to trade or tertiary education only to find they are not able to attend due to family poverty. Undertaking university or trade school education away from home means students must also be able to afford housing, food and other expenses. For many this is simply out of their reach.

Our Future Pathways fund allows us to provide scholarships which enable students to achieve all that they can.

We’ve opened this fund so students futures, and their future generations, will be changed.

Think about the impact on a student who has strived through their secondary years only to find that when they do gain entry to tertiary studies they can’t afford to buy food or the basic requirements needed to stay in school.

This fund will allow students to study at their most suitable level so they can achieve their best. Not everyone desires or is best suited for tertiary education. Some would prefer a trade school to prepare for their future. Our desire is to help students in the best ways to facilitate their dreams.

It’s not intended as a total solution but instead a helping hand. Students will still need to find some finances themselves through part time work etc. But this program will help take the desperation out of the situation.

Your donation to our Future Pathways program will help older students like Wang. You can make single donation to the fund or make a recurring monthly donation to continue students in their studies

Just select Future Pathways Edu Scholarship from the drop down menu in the donation form.

If you prefer to sponsor a younger child to help with their education through primary and secondary schools. 

Safe water bores are currently being installed in 1 village per month.

That keeps between 1300 and 2000 children and family members safe.

We would love to do more.
