Your Support Changes Lives: Meet Plana!

Plana continues education because of YOUR support!
Plana continues education because of YOUR support!

Dear Project Supporter,

A school year end is approaching and Your support has made so much changes over the last nine months in the lives of the children who have spent their whole lives, or the biggest part of it in various collective centres around Serbia. Plana S. is a 15-year old girl living in a collective centre in Pozega since birth and is one of 10 children receiving scholarship from Your donations.

"Last year, when I was finishing the seventh grade, I thought I could never think of going to the secondary school. My parents can hardly earn any money for basic stuff for my brother and twin sisters, and I could not imagine asking them for expensive textbooks, bus ticket to Uzice to go to school or anything else. Then one day last October, I was told that I would be receiving scholarship this whole school-year. I couldn't believe it. I could continue going to school after all! It was then that I decided to save that money as much as possible this year, so that I could go to the secondary school when I graduate from the elementary school this May !"

Plana has spent little money from her stipend to buy a dress and new shoes for her elementary school Graduation Party and the rest she is keeping to buy books for a new school in September.

"I have improved my grades since I realised that I might be able to continue with education and now, I believe I will enrol into Technical School in Uzice without any problem. I can't thank enough my Sponsor for this support and money, but more than anything, for making me feel equally worth as my peers for the first time in my life! It is the most beautiful feeling in the world."

Soon you'll have the opportunity to help even more children just like Plana!
Join us June 25th for a Microsoft Youth Spark Bonus Day when Microsoft will give 100% matching to YOUR donation to children in collective centres in Serbia.
• Matching is applied at 100% for every donation from $10 up to $1,000 per donor until matching funds run out.
• The project that raises the most funds on Bonus Day will receive an additional $2,500.
• The project that has the most unique donors on Microsoft Youth Spark's Bonus Day will receive an additional $2,500.

We hope you will join us and help OUR children get the food, clothing, and education they need to be happy and healthy and to feel equal to other children!

Thank you very much for the interest and support for our project. Please feel free to contact us with any questions, comments or ideas at
