2012 School's in Session

Happy to be in school

The beginning of January is exciting and hectic!  Schools open for the new year.  The students need uniforms, books, school supplies and education fees.  Shopping for uniforms and supplies means long lines and long days but the rewards are great! 

We thank you for helping get 10 children completely outfitted and sent to school.  There are several more on the waiting list for uniforms or school fees.  Just yesterday I was approached by an anxious father.  His son had had all his school items stolen, including his uniform and shoes. 

The father is desperately trying to find help before his child loses too many days of school.  I do believe we have one fantastic pair of shoes to bring the dad today.

We hope to raise enough to get several more into school before the term has progressed much further.
