$.30 a day makes a difference

NEEED (the Burkinabe NGO that founded & runs the girls' education project) reports that 98% of girls supported by the Lambs For School Project (see Education For 900 Rural Girls in Burkina Faso) are passing annual exams in primary school; and 100% are passing annual exams in middle school, qualifying them to go to the next level. It is anticipated that middle school enrollment will grow from 400 this year to 600 next year. At just $.30 per student per day, school lunches are essential to students' ability to concentrate and succeed in their studies.
