The purpose of the project is to give financial help to poor students who deserve assistance.
Selection of students eligible for a sponsorship
Students who apply for sponsorship are screened through a laid down procedure to determine their eligibility for assistance. CandleAid takes into account a student’s academic history, current progress, financial circumstances of the family and parental commitment. If the student qualifies to receive a sponsorship, CandleAid appoints a co-ordinator (the person recommending the student for sponsorship in most cases), who acts as the link between CandleAid and the student. Such coordinators are also screened by CandleAid to ensure their credibility.
