Love Scholar Project
According to the 2013 Functional Literacy, Education and Mass Media Survey (FLEMMS), one out of every ten or 4 million children (6 to 14 years old) and youth (15 to 24 years old) was out-of-school. They fail to finish their education due to the following: early marriage (22.9 percent), insufficient funds to study (19.2 percent) and lack of academic interest (19.1 percent).
An average elementary student needs at least P30 to cover his/her daily academic needs (P16 for fare and P14 for food). The Love Scholar Project (LSP) aims to address this concern by crowdsourcing funds which can subsidize the daily allowance of selected beneficiaries. Its goal is to assist a student finish his/her education for a year.
Beneficiaries would be selected from urban poor households which are currently being cared for by a local Christian church. Pre-screening interviews would be done by local church representatives and the Lovestruck Movement staff.
Priorities would be given to graduating Grade 6 students. Sponsors shall be informed of the identity of the pupil they are assisting. They shall also be updated regarding the academic performance of the sponsored child.
With just P5/day for 20 days (P100 a month, P1200 a year), one can subsidize the education of one elementary student (P20 per day). Four (4) sponsors (P100 each) would help together to send a kid to school (P400 a month). A sponsor needs to commit for one (1) year. Three payment schemes are available:
1. A one-time donation of P1200 for a year (P100 x 12 months)
2. Quarterly donation of P300
3. A monthly contribution of P100
Of course, sponsors can send financial assistance beyond the minimum contribution. For the meantime, they can be forwarded to any of these bank accounts:
