UAC's Orphaned Teen Scholarship Program
The economic reality faced by a 17 year old being released from an orphanage is bleak. What do they do? Without help, the scenario is scary. Options include prostitution, crime, drug abuse and suicide. With no family or stable support system, they have little hope. Our Orphaned Teen Scholarship Program is designed to prepare the teenage orphans for higher education and life management in the outside world. Learn how you can sponsor a teen today!
