Scholarship Fund ---Breaking the cycle

For many years now we have provided educational scholarships, including dorm and living expenses.  
This is one of the best ways to break a cycle of poverty .   A young boy or girl living at the dump for example can be into a clean safe living environment and given the tools they need to mature, and learn and graduate with a skill and the ability to get a good job. 

We have stepped out and have made commitments for this school year, To register, we need to be applying now and putting deposits down. currently we need $9250 to meat our target. 

Another way to break the cycle is to empower people to get ahead.. like we did with the seeds in the spring .  I just love getting follow-up photos of people working their fields , and messages like "Thankyou for helping us and teaching us so we can grow our own food "  This was an investment they you made in 250 families last spring , and today we are not having to pack food hampers for them and their neighbours .   a special thankyou from THEM to YOU !

There are some that are always going to need help, like this family below  whose father lost his legs . 

Life is not always fair, but with your support we have been able to provide the warmth to make it through the winter.  So as soon as we can get the Tuitions under control we need to start ordering coal for the winter .. Ordering in the next month can make a huge difference in the price .. 

As you can see some of our needs have started to pile up.  Now would be a great time to help if you are able . 

On a happy note, we have 30 men from the home for the disabled  sponsored for the picnic in the mountains on the 20th.  That will keep Tanya's hands full I am sure .. Thank you to all who donated to make this possible.
