Tuition update

We are so excited for Argin. For many years he has had a dream to study at a tourism collage in Bishkek. Life has thrown so many hurtles at him, but after all these years and detours it all came together yesterday when he was able to go in and pay his tuition and sign his contract.  

The last couple months we have been working at raising the funds needed for everyone to go back to school this fall.  There has been a bit of an awakening at the farm and everyone has started moving from the past and started thinking about their future .  We sit in the cafe and dream with the kids and talk about what their likes and dislikes and what they see for their futures .. It has been really cool seeing them begin to dream .  Next was getting past all the hurtles with getting their documents in order, police checks, military certificates, medical checks, and the list goes on , but we did it ! they are all ready now.    

I am still stressing a little bit about suddenly having all the tuition expenses , as you can see on the thermostat on the side that we are a ways to go with very little time left.  About half of the funds raised so far are monthly commitments  so that puts us in need of about  $3500 right away and another $400 a month . here is a breakdown of those expences and what the various studies will be.

Please if you are thinking you can help with this , NOW is the time.  I don't want to push too hard , but soon we will have to start dropping some of the support,  something I can not bear the thought of after all the work planing and excitement we have seen .
