A Shelter from the Storm

Dear friends--

A colleague of mine made the trip from Pogradec to Gjirokaster recently to visit the soup kitchen and see how the children in the school program are doing. When he visited, a cold rain was pouring down on the steep, cobbled streets of the old city. In the classroom building, the children were snug and warm. Having enjoyed a full meal in the soup kitchen, they were enjoying homework help, social time, and activities together.

Because of your incredible support, these children are still going to school, and still in Gjirokaster. Now, they have someplace warm and safe to go after school, and a hot, nutritious meal every day.  In the longer term, learning to read and write and acquire the tools of a basic education will help them build brighter futures for themselves than they would have otherwise.

Thank you for your support. This project is ongoing (the children still have a lot of growing up to do!) and you can still support them here.  It's nothing less than an investment in their future.

Gratefully,

Sarah Pita

Development Director

PS Did you know, we even have birthday parties for each child in the program? Cake and balloons help let the children know they are special and valued. Also,birthday parties are fun!
