Florence is like any girl -she wants to go to school and find a good job. Sadly, Florence can't afford to purchase school supplies for herself and since she is an orphan, she has no one to help her. Well, the American Foundation for Children with AIDS can help her, thanks to donors like you. With your help, we sent money to cover her school fees and her school supplies.
Florence was so happy to receive a brand new backpack with notebooks, glue, ruler, pencils, pens, paper, colors, markers, scissors, and a sharpener. She also loved received a pack with a large new towel, shampoo, soap, toothpaste, toothbrush, and finger nail clippers. Now, she can go to school clean and ready to learn. And, what else? We sent rolled up bandages that Florence can make into sanitary pads. NOW, she is complete and she knows she has no reason to miss a single day of school.
Thanks, friends for making this possible. Thank you for keeping another girl in school for another year. She can change the lives of her children one day, by having received an education and because she knows she has worth - someone cared enough about her to make sure she has a future. You might not know Florence personally, but that doesn't matter. You still changed her life.
