School ends at the end of November in Kenya. At this time students are taking their EXAMS. Then they look forward to their long holiday.
It is a busy time for Expanding Opportunities as we are fundraising for the nextyear's school fees, uniforms and books. Based on the amount of donations is the number of children we can assist to attend school. It is often difficult to understand that children are denied an education because they do not have a uniform, shoes, or lunch money. But thousands of children in Kenya drift to the streets in January as they are unable to attend school.
We hope to be able to continue to buy uniforms and support those children we have been assisting and to more than double the number of uniforms, books and school fees we are able to pay.
Just a pair of $25.00 second hand shoes can mean the difference between attending school and becoming a street child. Often just a $15.00 per term lunch fee can mean the difference between a meal in a day and begging food on the street.
As this year draws to a close we are thankful for those you have assisted us to help. And we look forward with excitement to the HOPE we will be priviledged to give in January 2012.
