1.

Selection: PEP focuses on helping those who want to be helped. PEP receives referrals from local people, the schools, and Ward offices. 

2.

Financial Engagement: PEP pays the monthly fees directly to the school when the child attends and progresses in their school work. Each family partners financially by paying a small portion.

3.

Advocacy: PEP enrolls the child in a good school in the child's own community. PEP field officer acts as the student advocate as parents are often unable or illiterate.

4.

Monitor: PEP field officer visits school monthly to monitor learning progress, identify tutoring needs, check parental engagement and maintain good relations.

5.

Enrichment:  PEP sponsors kids workshops. Vital personal development is provided for life skills, vocation, emotional and spiritual needs.

6.

Parent Seminars: PEP hosts parent seminars that teach student encouragement, nutrition, hygiene, parenting skills, lifestyle development, and supportive counsel.

7.

Tutor support: PEP tutors provide individual support to each student so they achieve grade standards. They also instruct in study habits.

8.

PEP+ : Professional development workshops and resources for teachers.

PEP Governing Principles

  • Cohort-based: A low-cost model, a cohort of donors supports a cohort of children. 

  • High-touch: Monthly contact with student, parent, and teacher.

  • Partnership: If only a little, each parent pays some of the costs.

  • Engagement: Each PEP family must attend non-academic, life-skills workshops.

  • Results: We hold ourselves accountable for results.
