Due to COVID-19, our children's home faces a dual challenge of increased financial needs and decreased donations. Students have been sent home from boarding schools, increasing the cost of food at the center. However, the schools will not issue refunds of tuition payments. Additionally, the center needs medical and hygienic supplies we expect to provide PTO to sick staff members as needed. To close the expected budgetary gaps, we hope to make sure every children's per capita medical and room and board costs are met. Many of our children have "partial" sponsorships, which cover 50% of the costs required for them to live at Amani and attend school. This doesn't cover their food, room or board. $450 a year would close the gap and ensure each child is fully covered. All month, we have been featuring specific children who need scholarships on social media. We're hoping to find 20 additional sponsors by the end of the summer. This will help us bridge the gap during these unprecedented times.
