Through Not Alone, you can change the life of an orphaned Coptic child by making it possible for them to stay in school, lift themselves out of poverty, and succeed long-term. The goal of Not Alone is to provide each child with access to the very best education, nurture the spirit of volunteerism, and develop a well-rounded character so they can break the cycle of poverty, live fulfilling lives, and one day, change their communities and Egypt.
Children enrolled in Not Alone are more likely to complete their secondary education than their peers. What makes Coptic Orphans unique is that we strive towards the development of all parts of the child, including character, physical and mental health, as well as service-orientation by nurturing the child’s spirit. We work closely with Church servants, our field staff in Egypt, and the Clergy. We also value your love, prayers, and support.
Not Alone builds a loving relationship between the sponsor and child, in recognition that we are all One Body in Christ. Sponsors’ prayers, letters, and other encouragement boost the child’s happiness and self-confidence, helping them to grow up to be healthy, well-rounded people and community leaders.
All it takes is the support of one caring adult like you to enable a specially trained Church-based volunteer to visit the child at home regularly, making sure that basic needs are met, planning all facets of the child’s education, and mentoring them wherever and whenever they need guidance.
Last year alone, nine Coptic Orphans youths won the prestigious LOTUS scholarship, almost double from the year before! The US government awards the LOTUS scholarship to only 50 young Egyptians annually, and one important result of your giving is to prepare Coptic scholarship candidates with private lessons, study skills workshops, coaching on applications, and constant mentoring and encouragement.
Our young LOTUS winners, from some of Egypt’s poorest Coptic communities, are receiving full financial support to enroll in top universities like the American University in Cairo and the British University. Thank you for helping us prepare even more fatherless Copts to rise from the poorest communities to the best universities!
