More children enrolled than planned

In the Central African Republic (CAR), many children, youths, men and women are living in extreme poverty. Therefore, P.A.S. HOPFAN makes sure that Siloé School welcomes them given that without such a support, it would be difficult for them to access basic quality education.

Under these circumstances, school fees at Siloé School have been reduced. Compared to private schools with the most affordable fees, Siloé’s costs are cheaper and less binding (see comparative table). In addition, Siloé is more flexible with families who have difficulties in paying for the fees by allowing their children to complete the school year despite everything. Families or those legally taking care of orphans do not pay for the fees if they make the request and following verification.

For the school year 2014-2015, Siloé School had to open its doors to 1,779 students (897 boys and 882 girls) at the end of the second term, while it should have welcomed 800 based on its capacity. The fees, the NGO’s flexibility and insecurity in the country encouraged many parents to favour Siloé, especially those living in the nearby.
