A Billion Times Thank You for Changing our Lives

Thank you GlobalGiving
Thank you GlobalGiving

Warm greetings.

Here's some good news to warm your heart (if you are in a cold climate) or make you feel "cool" and special (if you are in a warm climate).  School is in session and the computer classes that you help sponsor are in full swing.  The girls and school officials are so very appreciative of your support.  Providing this training has been image-breaking and image-shaping for these girls. 

The training has been image-breaking from the perspective that this is helping to break off scarcity, poverty and limited thinking. Receiving this training has lifted the limits, their sights and helped them the girls dream bigger.  It is image-shaping from the perspective that the consciousness of these girls has been lifted higher.  They now realize that they are valuable. They realize that you care enough to consistently support their education.  They are now taking their education more seriously than ever before.  They now realize that their future can and will be bright and better.  They are now thinking possibilities instead of limited or no options. 

This change and shift that we are effecting together is priceless! We deeply value your support!

This report includes a number of photos of the girls cheerfully holding up thank you signs.  Please know that your support is deeply appreciated.  As one of the sign read: "A Billion Times - Thank You for Changing Our Lives". Thanks so very much!

The best way to help us continue this impact is to sign up for a recurring donation.  Please help us continue this impact by signing up today.  Thanks for your support!

Dear Give For Youth Donors-

Dolly was delighted to receive the computer you helped to provide.  She sends her thanks and appreciation for given her the opportunity to use a computer in her neighborhood.  She has been waiting for this opportunity to help her fulfill her dream in life. 

Dolly sends this message to you - the donors who have helped make this possible: “I want to thank the donors of this computer for considering kids in the Wellington community to have knowledge in computer and make us relevant to our present world”.   Thank you so very much for helping to make this dream come true. 

This computer will be used by Dolly to improve her computer skills and prepare her for success in the future.  The computer includes a downloaded copy of a wide range of educational, instructional videos from Khan Academy.  We anticipate that not just Dolly will benefit, but also many other youths in the community. 

Reaching Beyond Dolly: We plan to fully furnish a complete computer lab in the next year and we welcome your support towwards this.  Please join us in making the dream of access to computer training come true for many other youths by making your best donation today. Thanks for your support!

It's with joy that we bring you this project report - which includes a link to a thank you video.  Thanks to your support, Juliet is now enrolled at the University of Makeni, in Sierra Leone and has started Accounting school. 

In the video, Juliet says a big "Thank You" to you for helping to send her to Accounting School.  She says - "Thank you so much for helping to pay my university bill."  She additionally tells us about her passion and desire to become "somebody great and useful in the society and also serve the young".  She closes with another word of appreciation - "Thank you so much for your provision, I really appreciate you, thank you"

Because of your support she is fulfilling her dream of getting trained as an Accountant.  Without your support, she would not be in school today!  This is huge, a game and destiny-changer!  We deeply appreciate you for your kind assistance.  Thanks sooooo much!

Be sure to watch the video and then help support another project in Sierra Leone here

Happy Juliet
