In a month from now , children will be heading back to school .. and that means back to school shopping for some , tuition payments for others and housing costs for others . We currently have 40 kids asking for help , every where from $50 up to $1200 , the average tuition being about $300. This is such a life changing opportunity for these kids to attend a good school. Many children we work with have been traumatized , or have faced the worst you could imagine. Getting them in the right school can make all the difference for them . Most of all, for the older kids, an opportunity to go to a good school may be the difference between life on the streets , or a bright future . we are currently looking for sponsors to help with this ..

This day we brought her a picture of Emma handing out the mitts last fall. it is in a frame that was made by the kids in the orphanage ...
some one else thinking ahead is the director of the Baby orphanage in Tokmok. I shared yesterday about the renovation needs that they would like to have done before winter . Today I have the official letter requesting help .. 128 000 som or around $2600. I am thrilled to say that we have had almost 10% of the funds come in on the first day .. looking forward to seeing this underway.
