School Fees for 40 Young Girls in Zimbabwe

It's Crunch Time

It’s getting close to the end of October. That means Harvest festivals and Halloween here in the US.  In Zimbabwe it is the onset of the rains, time to plow, prepare for planting – and prepare for final exams!  Exams are written in late November and December.  They determine whether or not students continue on to the next grade.  For Grade 7 children, their exams at this last year of Primary School will determine which Secondary School they are qualified to attend.

Being able to attend school, something we take for granted here in the US, is a life changing opportunity for a young girl in Africa.  Studies show that girls that attend Secondary School have a greatly reduced risk of contracting HIV-AIDS and are often able to stay out of abusive situations.  The more you contribute, the more girls ASAP will be able to help in the coming year.  The money you generously donated will have a huge impact on the life of a child in Zimbabwe.  

At the end of December, ASAP will select the new girls to be funded for all three terms of the 2013 school year.  The need is great.  The number of students ASAP can assist depends on your donations.  We will select the most deserving girls and look forward to sharing information about each of these fortunate children in January.  Please continue to give generously!  Thank you again.
