No more tears on Sara's face

Sara happy to start school
Sara happy to start school

There are no more tears on Sara’s face.  She is an orphan living with her aging grandmother with no income to send Sara to school; she was forced to stay home. Then a life-changing event happened. For the last two terms Sara was able to go back to school.  We are most grateful to God for the great intervention on Sara’s behalf, which has provided her with generous sponsors for the 2014/2015 academic year. 

Sara and PAAJAF are thankful to the generous donors who have become our philanthropists and a positive live changing people at PAAJAF by restoring and giving hope, education and future to those who need it most.  Not forgetting our dear partner – GlobalGiving since our partnership, the organization has given us hope at PAAJAF, peace, education and future to those children who lack education and being able to go to school. Sara is in class one at Mercy School Complex.  

Sara is one of the children who did not have access to school and scholarship but today as we are giving you update about her, there is a smile on her face every day since she had been gotten her school fees, materials, school lunch all been paid and home support also being given accordingly to her.  For her, just to wake up every day and go to school is a miracle and a blessing. 

Sara’s fund update:  Sara has benefited from the micro-project fund.  Her remaining fund balance is to support her for this last term for 2014/2015 academic year.  Last two terms, $1160 was spent on her covering the payment of school fees and admission at Mercy School Complex,  school lunch, School materials, uniforms for her and home support. This term, we are left with $500 to take care of her. Sara’s own micro-project funds will then be finished covering the 2014/2015 academic term. Our own low scholarship funds means it will be a heavy blow for Sara next term and we really want to help her for the 2015/2016 term too.

Scholarship fund administration and Sara’s donation update:  The PAAJAF Foundation’s core value is to ensure transparency in all our dealings and to our stakeholders. The scholarship fund, when there is fund in the account and we locate a child who needs urgent help.  We sponsor such child/children while PAAJAF is looking for a sponsor or donations for such child/children.   The last two terms, Sara was sponsored via the Scholarship fund. When donations or a sponsor is received then we refund what we have spent on such child/children back to the fund so that in future we will be able to support other children who need urgent help.  

Please help us to share the story of Sara to your networkers!  If you don’t, we will be posting her needs for the 2015/2016 academic year school soon and any contribution will help Sara.  Each year, PAAJAF has to look for donations or sponsors to enable the kids at PAAJAF to go to school.  Do you have any concerning regarding this update or about Sara or about PAAJAF? If yes, please drop us an email at

Judy age 5 is so happy and he and his whole family send their love and thanks to you as a generous donor to his cause.

Judy can now join his big brother Madicy at Winners Family school. Judy could not go to school for many years, his mother is a petty trader and father a taxi driver who earns between $5-$6 per month which is not enough to send the boys to school. Judy's mother says that words cannot express her thanks and praise for this wonderful opportunity brought for her lovely sons. Judy is so excited every day, I asked him what is your favourite subject at school...Judy likes Math and being in the school with his friends. He likes to know how to write and make art and games and seeing his brother in the school with him.

With your generous support Judy has received school fees for one year, health insurance, uniform, books and school meals, now he will learn how to read, write and do arithmetic and have a strong start for the future, he can achieve better jobs in future thanks to your support.

Thank you.
