Thanks to your donations, we’ve been able to completely fund a school for all 31 school age children living at the orphanage for a full year.

Every part of the school has provided an educational opportunity – the older kids even got involved building the benches for their school! Properly supervised, they helped us put the prefabricated desk parts together, even trying their hands at drilling.

The next step in the school’s development will be providing better books, uniforms, and increasing educational support for children who are struggling.

The education that your donations have provided gives these children hope for a brighter future. It is a long-lasting, essential gift, and we’d like to thank you for giving it to the children of Hands Together to Defend the Children (HTDC) Orphanage.

Further donations will support continued long-term security for the school, so please continue to spread the word about HTDC so that we can provide on-going support for these deserving kids.

Again, thanks so much for all you’ve done!

All our best,
