The challenge:Work for $ 3 a day or go to college?

This is a brand new project  which has been a long time in the making.  From the beginning, Kasumisou Foundation has emphasized education ( This is a vast understatement !) We have urged the  children in our programs to work hard in school and work toward the ultimate goal: a high school diploma and a  possibility of college.

Now, for a few of the students, the moment  has come. They have managed , against great odds, to graduate from highschool and they dream of college. The challenge: no money. The reality: even with a High School diploma a student from the countryside with few resources has few challenges. Two of our students have taken work ta $ 3.00 per day - hoping to be  manage to live and still able to save something for college!

Let's help these kids.

Do they resign themselves to working for $ 3.00 per day or can we help them go to college and have a real chance at breaking free of the poverty cycle?

We have a unique opportunity to make a difference and build futures. These kids have already done the hardest part- let's help them to succeed!

 

Thank you,
