Alternative School Fees Payment Methods
A child’s education is the most valuable investment a parent can make.
The Inua Village to Global Foundation’s an affordable and alternative model of school fee payment helps keep the children at school. This is specifically for those parents who in one way or another are not be able to make monetary payments.
Our schools accept in-kind payment for fees for needy families in the rural communities. This mode of school fees payment may include; Fuel firewood, cereals (beans, maize, and sorghum), fruits (bananas) or casual labor at our farms.
For instance, Ronard Wekesa and his wife Agnetah Nyarocho are parents at our Furaha Inua Global School. They have four of their children in the school. The children are in grade in 5, 4, 1 and pre-primary 2. The family has two children on scholarship program and have to cater for the school of the other two. They haven’t been successful with raising enough fees for the two.
So to cater for the school fees of their two children, they decided to lend their services to school, to plow and weed the school farm. The family provided farm services equivalent to one term fees arrears for the two children.
This form of payment has enabled Agnetah’s children attend all the class lessons and avoid being sent back home to fetch for school fees.
With the alternative school fees payment, parents are rest assured that their children’s education is guaranteed as they don’t have to worry for lacking ‘cash’ school fees.
