Become an IREAD Sponsor and help us reach more children
PLATINUM LEVEL SPONSOR:
(Build and Exclusive Naming Rights for a School)
Sponsorship is offered at the following donation level irrespective of the actual cost of the construction, which is typically higher - IREAD will pay the difference from its unrestricted funds.
Northern Pakistan: $45,000 CDN.
Uganda: $65,000 CDN
The Ugandan centres are larger than the ones in Pakistan due to the higher population of ECD-aged children in the villages.
GOLD SPONSORSHIP LEVEL:
(Build and Co:Naming Rights for a School)
For half the cost of the above, 2 donors can co-name the centre. Both donor names will be recognized on signage and they will be invited to jointly inaugurate the centre:
Northern Pakistan: $22,500 CDN
Uganda: $32,500 CDN
SILVER LEVEL SPONSOR:
(Educate 100 children for 3 years – school fees and lunch)
Many children cannot afford even the $40 per year to attend ECD. A donation of $14,500 CDN will provide 100 children their entire ECD schooling from age 3 to 6 giving them a solid foundation for primary grade one.

For a donation of $5,400 CDN you can pay for the following costs associated with running one centre.
- Cost of maintenance and upgrading of the buildings and equipment
