On behalf of Wilkenson, "Thank You!" so much.
Thanks so much for helping to provide a year* of school for Wilkenson.
Fourteen year old Wilkenson lost his parents in 2009. After his parents died his grandmother tried to care for him and his brothers, but she couldn't afford to feed them. So she was forced to abandon them at the HTDC orphanage.
But with so many other needs, like food, to worry about, the orphanage couldn’t provide Wilkenson with an education.
Without an education, Wilkenson’s future looked bleak. Wilkenson's an intelligent child, and speaks great English. But without basic literacy and numeracy, he would almost certainly have been doomed to a life of poverty.
But Wilkenson is lucky - he has you in his life.
Your fantastic generosity means that we’ll be able to keep Wilkenson in school and learning the skills he needs to build a brighter tomorrow. Wilkenson’s been doing really well in school, but if he needs extra help we’ll be there to get him the tutoring he needs.
We’ll be able to support Wilkenson because you chose to give. There are so many things you could have spent your hard earned money on, but you chose Wilkenson. Thanks so much.
We’ll keep updating you about Wilkenson and all his classmates through this project’s parent page, Provide a Safe Home for Haitian Orphans. If you ever have any questions about how we're using your donation, please email Andy@IDVolunteers.org. We’d love to hear from you!
Thanks again, and very kind regards!
*Donations to this project will cover Wilkenson’s school costs over a year, but will be spent on all the children in parallel as we fundraise for each in turn.
