What is Little Paths Australia SSS Program?
Little Paths Australia SSS Program provides Secondary School Scholarships for the entire school life of a recipients' secondary school career. It is a legal and humanitarian requirement that all primary aged children attend school and that ‘street child centre’s” provide educational opportunities for primary school aged children.
Secondary school is not compulsory and for many children their educational experience ends at their final primary year, due to lack of financial resources.
Generally orphanage/centre's support stops for secondary school aged street children, as the cost of support becomes unsustainable.
Little Paths Australia offers scholarship support for street children or former street children who have are being supported with family care or care in a family like unit and whose need for support continues in order to complete their secondary education.
Who is it for?
SSS program strictly caters for young people who have or are currently experiencing homelessness, who are or have been registered with a street child recognised centre and who would otherwise not be able to continue with their secondary education.
How do we support SSS Program Recipients?
Currently, Little Paths Australia provide on the ground support for scholarship recipients, via Little Paths Australia Tanzanian Liaison Officer (TLO). Katie Magambo and Social welfare officer, Naomi. Our team provides support during the application process and beyond to ensure that all the recipients educational needs are met and that Little Paths Australia supporters are kept up to date with the recipients progress.
When & Where?
Scholarship recipients' engage with our program around between November and December of each year, in preparation of January entry to secondary school in prospective countries.
Scholarship recipients are currently being located in Mwanza, Tanzania for 2012 enrolment.
