Change is in the Wind

Change is coming for the Ariemet Girl’s Center. Expanding Opportunities will be leaving the direct rescue operation to two other non profit organizations and building a School on the Ariemet site. The current rescue center will receive an addition and be used as a dormitory for rescued and other girls. The girls will receive protection, education and counseling. They will join other girls in education and along with them receive remedial and vocational education. We are very excited about this new development. We will continue to assist rescued and vulnerable girls in other areas with education and dormitory fees to help them remain in school protected from FGM and EFM. We trust donors will be pleased with this new direction as education is the power behind long term change for the girls.

Donations given through this project on Global Giving will be used exclusively for the education and other needs for girls in danger of FGM and EFM.

TERM TWO is upon us

A typical Classroom

TERM 2 is already upon us! School fees are due again. Uniforms are stable, more books are needed, and those three times per year school fees for all the children we support seems overwhelming. Our children are performing well in school and gaining all the time   Many of them took two tests during Term 1. For an example of how hard they are working let me select 5 sets of scores. Five children scored 312, 229, 341, 282, 267 respectively. A few weeks later at the end of the term the same children scored 380, 312, 400, 322, 318 respectively. All of them improved. The children know that wonderful donors are helping them and want to perform to be worthy of your assistance. Most of them would not otherwise be able to go to school. Thank you for your assistance to make education possible.

Growing them Strong

Growing up strong! Expanding Opportunities is so pleased with the way the children in our children’s home are growing! The sound of happy singing children fills the compound. They sing when they work and sing when they play. They work hard and make fun of their work. Rarely is there a complaint. It has not always been this way. It has been a long winding road to obtain the balance between work and play between a Home and the Home they no longer have. We have been growing them strong and growing them out. We now have some openings. A HUGE thank you to you, the donors, who have made it possible. Help us to bring in more children and continue to grow them strong.
