We are thrilled that Global Giving UK have selected us as part of their 'Back to School' appeal (http://www.globalgiving.co.uk/back-to-school/) and what a fanatstic time to reignite our fundraising efforts for 2013!
Over here in South Africa the school year runs from January to December - so as we are now in the first week of 2013, it truly is "Back to School" for our children - whether it's having their first year at pre-primary, attending primary school for the first time, others making the transition to high school and even our oldest children embarking on the last years of their studies.
What do they all have in common? They all need your support!
We are now desperately campaigning for school fee's, transport costs and uniforms to get in place before the start of term! We have 4 new children in need of psychologist assessments, and 15 children needing occupational therapy with a further 15 needing remedial support to help them maximise their scholastic potential...!
Making a donation could not be easier - you can simply visit our project pages - http://www.globalgiving.co.uk/projects/maranathaeducation/ (or http://www.globalgiving.org/projects/maranathaeducation/ in the US) and donate any amount from just £5 (we are a small charity and EVERYTHING we recieve makes a DIRECT impact!)
And we are also very pleased to launch our micro-project (on globalgiving.org) for our secondary project, Protea Primary, who have done so much to assist our children over the years, giving them a chance of an education when no one else would. Find out more about our initative to help them with school supplies here: http://www.globalgiving.org/microprojects/primaryschoolsupplies/
If you can spare a donation at the start of 2013 it will truly help kick start our year, but we'd love for you all to forward this email to your contacts, post on facebook, twitter and everywhere else to get the word out there!
Let's get this BACK TO SCHOOL campaign ROLLING!!!!!!
