Sponsoring a Child

If you are able we ask that you donate enough to cover a full year of schooling for a child. Choose whether you would like to cover the cost of a government school 3 or government school 2, and whether you want to sponsor a child in primary or secondary grades.

Contact us directly if you would like to sponsor a child in a private school. Private schools vary—they can be boarding schools, or have selective admissions policies, and of course have differing price structures.

If you cannot afford to pay tuition for a complete year for a child, we ask that you donate as much as you can, and we will put the donation into our general education fund. Your donation and those of other donors will be pooled to send as many children to school as possible.

M-LISADA will choose the child who will benefit the most from your donation.

See cost approximations under Tuition Costs. Please feel free to contact us if you have any questions or concerns. Write to Rochelle Zabarkes, president of M-Lisada Africa Foundation, at, or to Donia Emilly, Administrator, at
