Thank you to everyone!
Our first project with Global Giving has been a huge success. What started out as just a small project to see how the program ran and how it would suit the needs of our school turned out to be a huge success. We raised $10,620.00 for this project. The building itself was constructed with funds donated by other donors, however we still faced the huge task of filling our library shelves with books, computers, purchasing audio visual equipment and projectors, furnishings, etc. Now, through the help of everyone who has donated we will be able to face the task at hand and bring a much needed resource center into the realm of reality.
Our little school is growing and thriving because of people like you, who have given to such a worthy cause. Educating our children, to me, seems to be the meaning of life. Why else do we exist but to ensure the future....education is the means by which we are able to secure the future. Our next project will secure the future for our school. Purchasing the rented land the school currently sits on will help secure the future of children on this island for generations to come.
We will continue to report on how our library and classroom project fulfills our dreams, as we are able to purchase the much needed items with the disbursement of funds over the course of the next month or so. Look up our new project when it appears on our site in the next few days. Consider how you are going to give and make a difference in the future. Sometimes it is human to see all we would like to see changed, however the only way it will change is if we act upon it. Make a change in the future...help educate a child, become a sponsor or a monthly donor.
Thank you all from my heart,
