Of all the CandleAid initiatives, greater emphasis is given to the education programme as we firmly believe that education provides a springboard to leap out of the well of poverty. We are deeply encouraged that many of our sponsored students have reached great heights in their personal development. There are some who have obtained doctorates, others who are gainfully employed as Accountants, Engineers, Teachers etc. These students have certainly made full use of the assistance given to them through their own determination and grit. While propelling themselves to a great future, they have also improved the quality of life of their parents who struggled to feed, clothe and educate them. They are also helping their younger siblings to pursue their studies with a lot more financial support than they had in their struggling student days.
