School Sponsorship Program
S3Z’s school sponsorship program provides students with textbooks, school supplies, and uniforms. Each student’s sponsorship is approximately $90 per year. You can sponsor a child for the upcoming 2021 school year!
Microloans for Small Businesses Program
In September, 2020, S3Z and ADP began a microloan initiative to empower individuals who already own small businesses, or who are seeking to start a brand new small business.
Community Development Program
The community school in Mapalo was in desperate need of repairs to their septic system that had failed. In October 2019, $1,366 was sent to ADP for a new septic system to be installed, allowing the children to once again use the toilets in the school. Additionally, the very young students in the nursery school did not have appropriately sized toilets to use, so new toilets were purchased and installed for the young children.
