3. Self-support & Sponsorship Program
It is the goal that after the beginning investments the school running expenses increasingly through School fees and Sponsorship programs being covert.
The high standard of education provides an opportunity for children from all levels of society to attend the domino schools. The school fees will be as low as possible but realistically calculated in order to cover the operating costs.
The families who are not able to pay the school fee can apply for sponsorship. The school teacher will visit these family homes and after an evaluation will be decided if Sponsorship is needed.
The domino sponsorship program is available for underprivileged families have three pillars:
To accomplish the school projects we rely on the capabilities and the resources of the local people with whom we work. Sustainability is dependent on the initiative and responsibility of our partners. From the beginning the concept of independence has shaped the cooperation.
From the beginning local partners carry the main responsibility for the planning and implementation. Through that we want to guarantee that the project will continue under local leadership after the support phase.
People from the domino foundation monitor the development of the schools and projects through the continuous exchange of information. Regular visits give the opportunity for adjustment and mutual encouragement. Some problems can only be solved on the spot.
The economic aspects are a priority. The levying of reasonable school fees is necessary for the independence of the schools. Hence, it is important to support the families in their efforts to provide the school fees by themselves.
We emphasize good quality in education. The teachers of the domino schools are obligated to regularly undertake advanced training. Good cooperation between the local domino partners of the schools is important.
We have reached our goal when our help equips and encourages people to help others.
