Sponsorship fees

The sum you pay as a sponsor covers your child’s school fees, uniform, sportswear, shoes and
essentials (e.g. pens and notebooks). The amount you pay depends on whether the child is in
primary, junior secondary or senior secondary school. There is no set rate for students in tertiary
education: that is decided by each sponsor individually before the sponsored student goes to
college. The Society always informs sponsors about the amount due the following year in a
Newsletter published at the end of December. These Newsletters are sent to all sponsors by e-mail.
They are also published in the News section of our website.

Making the payment

We do not send separate bills at the beginning of the year and hope that sponsors will pay what they
owe based on the rates set out in the Newsletter. If you don’t remember your child’s school level,
please ask our secretary at oili.wuolle (at) gmail.com

You can pay in one of three ways:

  1. in a single payment at the end of January
  2. in three instalments by 31 January, 30 April and 31 August
  3. in ten instalments during January-October

We’ll send you a reminder if we don’t receive your payment by the beginning of May.
