Provide Education for 470 Burmese Migrant Children

Jan 11, 2010

Update on our 265 children and Global Giving Challenge

The Foundation for Education and Development (FED) staff, teachers, students and parents would like to extend their thanks and deep appreciation to all the people who donated to our children during and after the Global Giving Challenge. Every little bit counts! All donations have gone to sustaining the children's access to education and keeping them out of dangerous, exploitative work.

The money raised so far, $6,181, has gone towards much needed stationary and notebooks for 2010, school transportation costs and some teachers salaries, although we still have some way to go before ensuring a daily nutritious meal for every child.

As we were able to raise over $4000 through over 50 separate donors FED has now been granted a permanent spot on the Global Giving Website. Keep your eyes peeled for many more FED projects that will be appearing on the Global Giving website in the up and coming weeks. Some of these include projects in Mobile Health, School Integration, Women's economic empowerment, community development and legal aid.

Thanks again and a pat on the back to everyone that made this possible.

Happy New Year!!
