Lakiel will reach her dream because of YOU!

YOUR gift makes a HUGE difference in the lives of YOUR children.

Because of YOU, 352 girls are in school this year.

That’s 352 future lawyers, doctors, pilots, presidents, and nurses like Lakiel.

Lakiel is a primary 4 student at Kutamba Primary School.

Because of YOU, she is a happy, 10-year-old who loves to play net ball and read books.

Without YOUR help, Lakiel’s mother would not be able to afford to send her and her five siblings to school.

Lakiel would be at home cooking, cleaning, fetching water from the well, and dreaming about one day being a nurse.

She would know that her dream could never come true.

YOU rescued her.

I hope you feel the love and gratitude that Lakiel has for you.

 

Tomorrow YOU can help more girls like Lakiel!
