The mission of The Lion of Judah Academy is to provide an outstanding education to the children of families (pastors, church workers, and others) who cannot afford to pay for that education. Key partners in this mission are our sponsors…those who support the school by sponsoring individual students. People like you…who participate in the miracle of providing Hope and a Future.
That is the purpose of these four Sponsorship Programs.
BEFORE LOOKING AT THE STUDENTS in the Sponsorship Programs, here are a few things to be aware of:
The school fees for a “day scholar” — a student who lives in the local area and walks to school each day — are 1,000,000 Tanzania shillings, which equals about $470 a year. That’s about $39 each month.
The school fees for a “dorm scholar” — a student who lives on campus — are 2,000,000 Tanzania shillings, or about $935 a year. That’s about $78 each month.
Now…this next part can be a little confusing, and we apologize for this in advance (but we don’t yet have another way to present this). You will see that each “Sponsorship” is $39. That means each day scholar needs one sponsorship…each dorm student needs two sponsorships. But the text in the profile of each dorm student says, “Amount Needed $39/Month.” That is misleading — but we have no way to change this text. Each sponsorship is $39 — but each dorm student actually needs two sponsorships at that $39 level. If you choose to sponsor a dorm student you will be given the choice to provide one sponsorship or two sponsorships. But the text is misleading. When looking at the “Available Sponsorships” page you can tell if a dorm student is partially sponsored – there is a bar above the “Amount Needed” — if that bar is empty the student needs two sponsorships…if the bar is half filled-in, the student needs one sponsorship. That bar also appears in the student’s profile, under their name at the top of the page.
You can also sponsor a student in other ways (for instance, through one or two contributions during the year) or for different amounts. Please see the Frequently Asked Questions.
