Thanks so much to everyone who took advantage of GlobalGiving’s most recent matching day. Your gifts on the 23rd were a third more valuable– and that has made all the difference for students like Louis.
If you’re like us, you’re starting to think about the holiday season. The holidays are a time of joy – but for many of us they’re also incredibly busy! Before the end of year rush starts, we wanted to pause for a moment and thank you for everything you’ve given over the last year.
Because of you, not only has EIM continued to provide high quality education over the last year – it’s grown. With your support, we were able to welcome new students like 48 year old Vional.
Vional has always struggled to find a job and support his family because he lacks vocational skills. He joined EIM in August 2013 because he wants to develop the skills he needs to find gainful employment.
Vional’s message on how learning English will help him is simple: “I will use English to help my community and feed my family.”
Vional isn’t the only student who uses English in his community. English speakers have the ability to communicate with NGOs about support for their communities. Put another way, English is a bridge between communities in need and the NGOs that can help them. That bridge allows communities to advocate for their own needs.
Vional is one of dozens of students who joined the school in 2013 – but not a single one of them would be getting an education without you.
There are so many things you could have spent your hard earned money on over the last year, but you chose to support EIM. Your generosity is giving 150 people living in poverty a path to a brighter future. Thanks so much!
As always, if you ever have any questions about how your donation is changing lives, please don’t hesitate to get in touch by emailing Emma@IDVolunteers.org. We’d love to hear from you!
Thanks again for your generosity, and our very warmest regards!
