Sometimes you just say yes.
Our scholarship program is full. Maxed out for the year.
Recently a family in our scholarship program took in 3 family members. She wasn’t able to put the kids in school but they weren’t being beaten anymore and were able to eat regularly.
When we sat down with their grandma we found out a little more.
Mom went to Chile to work to send money back to the family. Grandma found out the kids she left behind were being treated as slaves and so she took them in. Took them into her home. A house already full. A home full of grandkids as moms are in Chile looking for work. Kids who aren’t hers.
She took them anyway.
Kids need to be in school so we said yes.
We met with a local principal and she said yes too! She enrolled the kids at half price tuition and allowed them to start school without uniforms! This is unheard of but madam Benita knows the value of education and that missing a year of school can be devastating.
Now we need you to say yes. We try hard to stay within budget. We often have to say no, but we all wanted to say yes.
For us, this marks change. This is community working together. These kids aren’t restaveks (slaves) any longer. They are in a family and in school!
We need your help. We need 3 sponsors at $40/month.
And to continue to help families with education scholarships, family medical care, and economic opportunities (jobs!) we need even more help. Our double matching commitment only has 13 more days. As of December 18 we have raised just over half ($25,010) of the $50,000 we need to get the full $50,000 matching. So in the next 13 days we need $24,990 to reach our year end goal.
