A few months back BaNgaAfayo thanks to everyone who contributed managed to provide school requirements for over 200 children. Among these were books, pens, pencils and sanitary towels for the adolescent girls. This time around we hope to even provide more tools. Currently the children are have their holidays which gives us more time to contribute and prepare for their reporting date on 26th September 2016.
For now if we can help a child comfortably attain education with them not in lack of any school requirements then we are convinced they will pay more attention in class. Maximum concentration in class comes with the good grades by which they can attain a better future.
It is not only the children we are helping but also the school staff. In many ways having stable students not disturbed by lack of school requirements is an advantage. The teachers’ work is made easier and they don’t have to get worried about sending the children away and when these children perform better the school gains prestige. Not forgetting that we would be doing these children’s parents and guardians a big favour by easing their distresses.
The challenge we’re facing
Many families are struggling. With high unemployment, and more than 200 families earning less than $1 a day, many parents are unable to provide the basic school supplies their children need to be effective in school.
How you can help
With this charity drive we hope to raise a total of $1500 and with this we will provide scholastic materials to these children. You are welcome to donate a gift of $5, $10, $20 or any amount of your choice to this campaign. There are many great reasons why you should get involved to help with this project, including:
- Feel great about ensuring that children start the school term with the tools they need to succeed.
- Help teachers by providing them with proper tools for their classrooms so they don’t have to spend money from their own pockets.
- By providing school supplies, you are supporting students, teachers and a local school.
We can do more together…
