Where the donations go

With your money we have hired a head teacher and an assistant for the classroom and had bookshelves made to display all the donated books. We have also had the room freshly painted in a happy yellow colour.

Here is an example of what your donation can do:

  • $11 provides a healthy warm meal for 20 students for 1 day
  • $35 pays for the assistant who helps with cleaning and other personal care for the students so the teacher can fully dedicate herself to the educational process
  • $40 pays for 20 thick lined notebooks, 40 pencils, 20 erasers and 20 sharpeners
  • $70 pays our excellent head teacher for 1 month
  • $150 will provide 10 students with a big table and 10 chairs for the new classroom

Contact us if you have any other suggestions.
