The goal of the Catch Them Young program is to support children from parents with leprosy by paying their school fees and stimulating them to finish school. The parents of these children are often too sick to work and cannot afford to send their children to school. By giving these children the chance to go to school they have a fairer chance of a future without poverty. The MvRF has financed the school fees for 1 year. The Leprosy Mission International guarantees the rest of the school fees.
