Even without the full funding of this project - we have brought home a new (used) bus for the children! Even though we now have the bus, the funding is still needed. They children are so happy and so proud. Thank you to all those who generously gave towards this dream.
These children have excelled academically under very difficult circumstances. We will buy a used school bus so they can compete on a national level with more privileged children.
We need US $12,000 to complete this project. These secondary school children continue to excel on national exams as well as sports and drama and music. They are in real need of a reliable means of transportation to attend these scholastic and extracurricular events. Our goal is to provide these students with the same opportunities as those with parents and attending much wealthier schools.
