Macedonian Children’s Outreach Project (MCOP)

Children's choir singing, smiling and with arms raisedThe project funds local children of Masese to go to school who otherwise wouldn’t be able to afford it.

The project tries to support one child from different families with two thirds of their school fees, encouraging families to maintain contact and interest in the education by paying only one third.

It also gives the children breakfast on centre days held during the school holidays and they attend PSHE and bible study classes. There are 147 children in the programme at the moment.

As the children progress through the school system, the financial commitment from MCOP increases as the secondary fees are more than twice that of primary school fees.

Whereas other projects in MVA are looking to be self-sustaining, this project relies solely on donations. You can make a donation stating it is for MCOP, or you can sponsor a child.
