Situation

Primary education is free, but Gambian families must buy books, food, uniform etc and pay fees for nursery and secondary education. Pageant's Sponsorship Scheme enables members to sponsor individual Gambian students throughout their educational career, providing continuity and a one-to-one relationship. However, sometimes a sponsor may not be able to afford to continue their donations, or sudden money problems in a Gambian family could jeopardise a student's continued education.

Solution

Pageant's Emergency Sponsorship Fund pays school fees and other costs until permanent sponsorship under Pageant's scheme can be arranged (or re-arranged), so that students are not forced to leave school at what could be a vital point in their education.
