COST PER STUDENT
WHO FUNDS THE PROGRAM
This sponsorship program is funded through ILSC Education Group’s $1 per registration initiative, campus fundraisers, and generous private program sponsors.
Learn to Earn program participants are young women and girls from Delhi and surrounding areas. Candidates are chosen based on financial need and leadership potential, with the ultimate goal of providing them the skills they need to obtain stable, gainful employment in education, hospitality and service sectors.
Candidates are typically excellent students with a strong potential for success who are unable to obtain the education, work or English language skills which would allow them to apply for better paying work.
In the economically-depressed communities where Learn to Earn students typically live, a lack of education often forces them to take manual labour or other low paying jobs in order to support their families and younger siblings. By providing specialized language and job skills, the LTE program can help participants to become an important breadwinner for their family.
