September Progress Report

Writing letters to our pen pals in Michigan
Writing letters to our pen pals in Michigan

Thank you to everyone for making our first month with GlobalGiving such a huge success. While we have a long way to go to raise the funds needed to purchase our land, set up a permanent home for our children and construct well equipped classroom facilities we are thrilled with the results.

We already have several donated computers the children are using. Their biggest delight is sending and receiving letters from their pen pals in America. Even our young ones, while they have to stand on the chair to reach the screen, like to write their own letters with a little help from the older children. It’s so rewarding watching these orphaned children have access to technology that we take for granted.

Our students had their midterm exams last week. While we won’t get the results until the end of this week we are confident they will do exceptionally well. During the last exams several of our children came in first position, while one of our girls placed first in the district. This is exceptional for several reasons. Firstly the public school classes have between 55 to 100 students per classroom, when the children first come to live with us they have not been attending school consistently due to their family’s inability to pay for the extra’s needed to attend public school.

YOU make all of this possible.

Thank YOU!

Jennifer Hughes-Bystrom
