springs,streams and rain. Realizing their desperate need, Better

for funds to carry out the second phase. We sincerely, appreciate all
those who contributed in one way or the other to make this project to
be realized and continue to plead to them to help spread the word to

Helping Underprivledged Children Go to School

In order to help the under privileged children equally have an
opportunity to go to school next academic year, Better Family
Foundation has resolved to assist 40 children instead of 35 to go to
school. These children have been selected from both primary and
secondary schools.

the field selecting the deserving children and holding meetings with
their parents and guardians. Presently, we have budgeted for the
material to be bought and tuition to be paid for each student or
pupil.

We are lobbying for funds from internal and external institutions in
order to enable us meet our target for this academic year. We thank
all who have be contributing financially in order to help us assist
these under privileged children. We kindly appeal that you help us
spread this information to your friends and relatives. God bless you.
Thanks, Simon
