We have just ordered more toys for our Nine Kindergartens! Our educational toys have gone over a treat with the students at our schools, who are so enjoying playing with the equipment we have been able to purchase and distribute to teachers. These are children who have never had a toy with which to play...to be a child. We now have musical instruments, brightly colored muscle-developing climbing toys as well as doctors and nurses' kits for the students to imagine possibilities for their futures, and other educational toys, both for inside and outside play.
You will have heard about the current uncertainty of the political situation in Sudan, and this is affecting our ability to help the villages in Darfur that we planned to adopt this year. We are incredibly proud of the volunteers who help us. Internet has been shut down and much of the mobile phone network. Despite this, word of mouth means that even the most remote village knows that we are continuing to do all we can to help. Insecurity across the country as a whole is going to make life for ordinary people far worse. We are going to be needed far more than now. Fortunately, we can continue to work with the nine Kindergartens that we have already established and to start all the background negotiations and planning for new Kindergartens. We must, if we are to help children to a better future.
If we can get the funds together now for new Kindergartens, we can start building as soon as possible. Just this week our team are visiting the State Ministry of Education to ensure there will be teachers available. We currently have enough funds to start building one of the Five kindergartens we have planned! Please can you help towards our second? A Kindergarten costs approximately £22,000 but we have built nine already thanks to many small, but important donations. Every Pound will help us towards our goal!
We would particularly like to thank our regular donors who's monthly giving, no matter what the amount, helps us plan and work more efficiently and effectively. If you would like to Become a Monthly Donor, of any amount at all, we would be so grateful. Thank you all! In the current worrying time in Sudan, let's give people hope for the future.
More toys at our Kindergartens!
