Helping to Raise a Future Leader

Dear friends and supporters:

It's a joy to once again share a project update on how we are together impacting the lives of girls and helping to further their education.  We are providing a vital lifeline - strengthening precious lives that would otherwise drop out of school - with potential and greatness unrealized.  What we are doing is simple, but so very profound!  This warms my heart and I hope it warms your heart too!

This report includes the story of Agnes. This following brief on Agnes typifies that of many of the girls that we are together helping.   These girls are gems, future leaders, with great potential and purpose.  However, they are faced with challenges that are beyond the ability of their families - living below the poverty line and at risk.

Agnes is an orphan who hails from a very poor home. Agnes’ parents died when Agnes was a baby. She has been living with her grandparents who are old, poor and unable to generate income. They used to live in a slum by the sea. Recently a flood washed away all their possession and her uncle died in the process. A few months later Agnes lost her blind grandfather due to the shock from the flood.  Agnes and her grandmother are presently displaced and are staying with a family friend. Agnes loves school and would like to be a lawyer. 

Though her family socio-economic situation is quite a challenge, yet Agnes is guaranteed continued education through your on-going support. Thank you for preventing Agnes from dropping out of school.  Your timely support has indeed given Agnes a hope and a future.  Through your support Agnes and many more girls are continuing their education.  Thanks so very much.

We welcome your on-going support that enables us to reach and impact the lives of many more girls. Through your special large gift today or by signing up for a recurring donation, we wll together do so much more.  Thanks for your support! 

Agnes
