Warm greetings.  The school year is well under way - and included in this update are a couple photos of the distribution of scholarships and supplies that took place in September.  Be sure to also see the photo (taken earlier this year) of a group of children holding "thank you" signs.  A couple of the signs say: "Thank You Global Giving Donors"

Together we helped to ensure the continuity of the education of several children in Sierra Leone.  It always warms my heart to see how we are enabling the education of these children - the future leaders of Sierra Leone and potentially the world!

The parents and children were so very appreciative of the support provided.   The funds provided also help to cover levied school-related expenses - which have resulted in other children dropping out of school.

Education, as you know is a game-changer and an enabler.  In each of our personal lives we can attest to the doors that education opened and the opportunities it provided access to.  Well, we are helping to provide access to opportunities for these future leaders.  We have a truly influential role - simple but effective.

 Thanks again for your support and best wishes
