We couldn't do it without you

Thank you for supporting Educare Fund in the 2019 GlobalGiving Girl Fund Campaign and International Women’s Day Campaigns. Together we raised enough to pay basic school fees for 10 of our 40 students. That’s 10 girls with a guaranteed place in class who will not miss any school days due to unpaid fees. A former beneficiary who finished high school several years ago thanks to your generous gifts reports that she has since completed a B.Ed degree. She is now working as a volunteer teacher at her former high school while awaiting return to university for post-graduate studies.  Like others before her, Puseletso believes that your support has had a two-pronged effect. With her fees paid, she no longer had to miss classes and could concentrate better in class with the worry of unpaid fees removed. These are her own words:

…. I got the scholarship through IBEA (Educare Fund's partner organisation in Lesotho). That was when my life changed for the better. I was no longer at risk of being laid off school for owing fees, so I was able to relax and concentrate on my studies. Not only did I finish high school, but I have now graduated from university. I was the first member of my extended family to obtain a degree and I believe I motivated my younger sister to finish high school. Also, with my own fees covered, my parents were able to afford her fees. She is now preparing to go to university too.

I asked Paul, one of our long-term donors to tell us why he supports Educare Fund. This is what he says:

I have supported Educare Fund more regularly since 2013 when they first joined GlobalGiving. Having lived and worked in Africa for a good part of my life, I know how important education is in this continent and how poverty and gender differences can have a disproportionate impact on girls. Although this problem applies to the whole continent, I know that it is significantly more so for Lesotho. My experience is that Educare Fund does an excellent dedicated job of addressing this issue. I am happy to continue supporting this organisation.

Puseletso and Paul bear testimony to the wonderful work you are all doing. None of this would be achievable without your kind donations.

Thank you so much for your generous gifts. We really value your support.

Warm regards
