Obtaining a higher education is more difficult and costlier for students who have children to support. This financial disadvantage in turn affects the security and well-being of the student's children, even well after graduation. Sherry S. is no exception - as a single mom of three, she works hard to support her family, but the majority of her wages are used to pay child care fees and her student loan payment of $500/month. As a result, she struggles to pay her kids' school fees, and cannot afford any extra curricular programs for her kids such sports or music programs, nor can she afford to start saving for their education. Unfortunately, there are no other charities or programs to help graduates with their student loans, and those who have children are especially affected. Sherry has been making student loan payments for 8 years, and without any assistance, it will take Sherry another 2-3 years to pay off her student loan. Thanks to Aeroplan and the HigherEd Points program, Aeroplan miles may be used to send a payment directly to her Alberta student loan account. 35,000 Aeroplan Miles is needed to make a $250 contribution to her loan account.
