COLUMBUS, Ohio, Feb. 26, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- eSchoolView's charity work continues as it pairs up with a school and orphanage in Africa to pay for the tuition of three students.
The Columbus, Ohio company's donation will provide educational funds for two high school students and one elementary-aged child under the care of St. Camillus Center for Orphans and Vulnerable Children. St. Camillus is in Mohale's Hoek District, Lesotho, a mountainous country encircled by South Africa in the most southeastern region of the continent.
The center provides shelter, nutrition and schooling to orphans and vulnerable children as part of its mission to keep the area's children healthy, educated and protected from abuse. It also offers support to people in community living with HIV/AIDS and other at-risk groups as they work to achieve independent and productive lives.
eSchoolView, which creates tailor-made websites for schools across the country on its content management system and develops other educational management software, is deeply committed to helping students and schools in need. Executive Director Rob O'Leary said he was honored his young company was presented with the request.
"At eSchoolView, we pour our hearts and souls into education because we believe in its power," he said. "We are staunch advocates of investing in relationships, investing in communities faced with need and, in turn, investing in the strength of our future."
The donation from eSchoolView will pay for school fees, books, clothing, and other mandatory supplies for enrollment. The total for high school per year is about $400 per student and $200 for grade school.
"We are very thankful that eSchoolView is making this opportunity available to the St. Camillus kids though its Investing in the Future campaign," Peace Corps Volunteer Stephanie Sales said.
The eSchoolView funds will allow the two high school students complete their schooling.
"Contributing toward the education of the students at St. Camillus is a natural extension of what we do," O'Leary said. "The center shares our vision of building strong and healthy communities in which our future leaders will thrive."
eSchoolView was created in 2008. Since then, its revenue growth lands the company near the top third (at 1907) of Inc. Magazine's 5000 list of fastest growing privately held companies in the U.S. for the second consecutive year.
