Dear project supporters
We are so very excited to report that your kids go back to school in 2 weeks! Schools as you know, have been closed for all of the academic year so far (since September 2014 because of Ebola). Schools were initially scheduled to reopen at end of March - but this was postponed by 2 weeks to April 14.
Do you remember the days when you were eager to go back to school? Then, you can imagine how eager the kids must be to go back to school. They are super excited to restart school and further their education.
Did you know that in many instances, children have not been able to go to school because their parents have not able to provide uniforms for them?
Thankfully, your kids will not be frustrated or hindered because of the lack of uniforms. Since the last report, we have together raised $650. With these funds, in the past 6 weeks, we have provided uniforms and shoes for over 15 kids. You can see some of the kids with uniforms in the photos included in this report and at the following link - kids with new uniforms.
Thanks to YOUR support, they are going back to school smartly dressed and looking great!
We believe that no kid should have to miss a day or week or month of school because they do not have school uniforms. Your support has made this possible and we are so grateful for your kind assistance.
