It takes a village to educate a child

It takes a village to support the education of the Good Samaritan Children's Home.  And on the 13 of June we are asking you to be a part of a village sending teen orphans to high school.  Did you know that the children of the Good Samaritan Home do very well on their 8th grade exams?  Most the children qualify to go on to high school.  But sometimes there is not enough money.  Teens then need to stay at the orphanage school and re-do 8th grade so they do not forget much of what they learned.  Education helps children, communities, and countries.

On June 13th you can help kids realize their dreams.  Global Giving is having a Bonus Day, matching this project by 40%.  Our goal is to raise $1200.  With our match, we will have enough to send two more teens to high school.  There is also a $1000 prize offered the project the largest number of separate donors.  Therefore we want large donations and many small donations.  So please join in.  Stand with us in a village that stands for education.
