Hard to believe, but we are now approaching the end of 2019. It gives me great pleasure to have this opportunity to thank you all for teaming up with Educare Fund through the years and in all the campaigns during 2019. This is also a good time to thank you for your support in this year’s GlobalGiving’s #GivingTuesday on the 3rd December as well as the foundation’s Year-end Campaign which runs until the 31st.
Thanks to your generous gifts, 10 more girls successfully finished high school at the end of the 2019 school year. 8 more girls will reach their final high school year, finishing at the end of 2020. Every year, thanks to your support, Educare Fund succeeds in ensuring that the annual cohort of 40 girls remains in school, without the threat of being laid off due to unpaid school fees. Many girls continually bear testimony to the impact that your generosity has on their young lives.
Thank you for the scholarship which has opened the door to a brighter future for me. I am especially grateful for your support because I was at risk of not being able to write my final high school exams due to lack of funds. My parents were not able to raise the money to pay for the exam fees. Thanks to you, I have now written my exams and am confident I can achieve my dreams. Donors like you make life brighter for us and I can only hope that one day I too will be in a position to bring a smile to a needy student’s face.

I am writing to thank you for the scholarship I am receiving from Educare Fund which has enabled me to remain in school one more year. Thanks to you, my parents’ financial burden is also lighter, with the school fees paid. I’m aware that I am very lucky to have this scholarship as I know there are thousands of other students who also need support.
I am happy to echo the sentiments expressed above. Needless to say, we couldn’t do this important job without your ongoing support.
I wish you all a Happy Festive Season and I hope that 2020 brings you peace, joy, and success.
