AFFLIP provides $100 Grants for students from impoverished backgrounds in Grades 4, 5 and 6 at risk of dropping out of school.
The grants are designed to encourage these students to stay at school with the support of their parents, through the provision of funds to pay for school fees, books, uniforms, and extra curricula activities.
Funds are raised through the generosity of Australian sponsors, transferred, and liquidated under the supervision of designated school heads in the Talomo District.
260 children have received 3-year scholarships since the scheme was first established and over that time sponsors have contributed over $80,000. All pupils have completed elementary school and have progressed to high school.
There are currently 141 pupils sponsored though the scholarships program.
