I am sponsoring a 6 year old child from Africa and noticed on his profile that he is not attending school. Is there a way for me to find out the reason why he is not able to go to school? Also, is there any way I can help support the family so he is able to attend school? Thank you!

Michelle, I appreciate your concern for your child's schooling. Education is an important part of releasing children from poverty. I noticed that his center does provide school fees and supplies for each of the children. This means that he will have what he needs to go to school when he is ready. However, most children start school at age 6 in Burkina Faso. It is likely that he just had not started school yet at the time that his profile information was collected, but he will be in school before the next update is done.
