Esther Enjoys School Thanks to Your Support & GivingTuesday

Esther - happy beneficiary
Esther - happy beneficiary

We are delighted once again to bring you another interest story of Esther, a beneficiary who has been positively affected by YOUR donations.

Esther comes from a family of many siblings. She has six sisters and three brothers.  Her father is alive but sadly, because of hardship, he has taken to drinking - and does not care about or support his children. Her illiterate mother is the breadwinner and her proceeds from her cookery enterprise are too small to take care of all of the children.

Esther enjoys school and her dream is to become a Nurse in the future. Without your timely support, Esther would not have been able to continue her education towards attaining her dream. Esther’s mother has additionally been given grants from Develop Africa to build up and expand her enterprise.

Thank YOU so much for supporting Esther.  Her life has been changed and she is on her way to becoming a Nurse.   Thanks You FOR helpING to make the dream of on-going education come true.

Without your support, this would not have happened. 

If you would like to learn more about Esther, connect with her on a long term basis and further support her dream - we would love to hear from you. She is full or purpose and potential - and truly deserves our support.
