Program "Support a university student"

We have been supporting children in collaboration with the non-governmental organization EOC-CFAO for 12 years. The goal is to keep the children in the Child Care Centers until they complete their basic education, regardless their age.

In 2010, the Association started a new special program that supports university students during their studies by paying for fees, books and stationery and by meeting their living needs and expenses.

You can start supporting a university student, even if you were not supporting him/her when he was living at the Child Care Centers. You can communicate with him/her, become informed about his/her progress and projects and encourage him/her during this vulnerable period of his/her life.

Until now,  22 students have completed their academic courses and 26 are still studying!
The cost of this program is 1 € per day, 365 € per year.


To initiate the fostering procedure the future foster parents should:
1.    Electronically complete the relevant form.
2.    Submit the sum of 100 € as a deposit.

The procedure is completed within a few weeks. Then the foster parent receives the student’s file which includes personal data, a photograph and a certificate of studies. The date on which the foster parent receives the file is considered as the official date from which the foster parent begins payment of the annual tuition fees, in one or more installments. The usual duration for supporting a student is 3 to 5 years.
