After your parents died, you weren't sure if anyone would ever believe in you the way your parents had. But now you know someone does. And somehow that helps you run a little bit faster, jump a little bit higher, and work a little bit harder to reach your dream. Knowing that someone is standing beside you makes everything feel a little bit easier

You'd seen shoes before but you'd never had a pair of your own. Your teacher smiled at you as brushed the dust off your feet and pulled the socks up all the way to yours knees. They feel tight and warm but, before you can decide if you like it or not, she slips the shoes--your shoes--on your feet.
The bunny runs around the tree and goes into the hole and, before you know it, you're standing up in your first pair of shoes. At first it's strange but you notice that the stones don't hurt your feet anymore. You can run faster and jump without worrying about cuts or bruises.
Even though you're young, you know these shoes mean something more than what they seem. It means someone cares about you from your head all the way down to your toes.

"If we are to reach real peace in this world . . . we shall have to begin with the children."(Mahatma Gandhi)
Every one of YOUR nursery student goes through an experience like this when they begin school. It might be the day they receive their first pair of shoes, the day they put on their first school uniform, or maybe when they receive their first pencil in class. Because YOU have given to this project, YOU have given a moment like this to a child who desperately needed it.
Faridah with her New school Bag
Faridah is one of YOUR primary students at Divine Primary School. Her favorite color is blue and she loves to sing. But most of all she loves to go to school. Every day she wakes up in the morning, puts on the shoes and the white and blue school uniform and Back pack YOU bought her and begins her long walk to school. As she walks to school, carrying the books YOU gave her, she dreams about her future.
She dreams of walking at her high school graduation just like your pioneer students did in December. Seeing them succeed gives her hope!
In just 8 years, Faridah will have graduated from high school and will be ready to pursue her dream of becoming a teacher. She'll never forget the generosity and love YOU have shown her.
We need YOU to help us so that children like her reach their dreams! http://www.globalgiving.org/projects/help-educate-aids-orphans-in-slums-rural-mama-africa/
