Summary of Activities
On behalf of the orphans in Fundong Village, thank you so much for your support!
BERUDA is proud to announce that you played a vital role in making our organization’s history by helping us secure a permanent place on the Global Giving fundraising portal!
With your help, our Orphan Education Through Goats project raised $4,340 through 66 donations between April 1 and April 30, 2012. Plus, three additional gifts in the month of May brought our grand total to $4,475!
This good news means that, not only can we purchase the 60 goats necessary to send our 20 primary-level orphans to school, but we will also be able to buy goats for an additional five secondary school orphans identified in Fundong by BERUDA’s branch office!
The BERUDA team greatly appreciates your dedicated support of our orphans through the GlobalGiving Challenge, and we thank you on behalf of the 25 children who will receive a rich and full education, thanks to you.
On May 19, BERUDA invited all the orphans and their guardians to our office in Fundong to announce the good news and begin the administrative process to send them to school.
The 25 orphans (right, with guardians) were overjoyed with the news and wanted to extend a personal thank you to all who have given them hope for the future.
