Is there any indication that these positive impacts spill over into non-sponsored siblings?

“What we find is that there is a strong possibility based on our data that there is a spillover affect to younger siblings of sponsored children that makes them have a higher probability of graduating from secondary school - about 7 to 10 percentage points. And we can say that with about 90% statistical confidence, which is borderline statistical significance, but far more likely to be true than not.”
