With this new project we enable the young people to receive a monthly sponsorship of 45 € for up to 5 years. These 45 € will not be given directly to the children, but will be put into a kind of savings account for them. The money has to be spent for career-enhancing purposes, such as attending a university or technical college, purchasing equipment in case of self-employment, costs for an apprenticeship or similar things. Like all our projects and campaigns, the focus should be on helping people to help themselves. Our graduates can apply for “START into LIFE” already during their last school year and the decision about the support will be made by Lea, Bonface and a coach on site. This means that a “letter of application” must first be submitted in order to participate in the program. This should indicate the motivation for participation and sponsorship. This letter should be written by the graduate him/herself, in order to show personal motivation. The decision process will then take into account the “letter of application” and an interview with the coach. This process is a first step to show the graduates how an application process works.
