We really feel that education is the key to great change here. Because of this, we want Give Hope 2 Kids to be a blessing to local elementary schools. So far this year, through the help of our groups, we’ve been able to hand out school supplies to some needy schools and to do a deworming campaign. We have future plans to pass out more school supplies, to teach some English classes, and to help schools get computers for further learning and development.
One particular school is but a tiny room overflowing with desks and around 30 students in 6 grades. The teacher recently thanked us for the school supplies that we had given them. She said that before our gift it had been months since they had chalk to use. What a small gift and look what a difference it made!
Chalk, paper, and pencils are such simple and inexpensive things, yet schools can lack even those things here. We want to help provide the basics, to enable the teachers to do their job well, so children will love to learn. A love of learning will make the difference in these young lives.
Thanks to all who have donated and brought school supplies. Thanks to the 2nd group from Indiana for doing the deworming campaign. We couldn’t have done it without your help!
