Friday's Featured Student - In need of a helping hand

Joseph SOS55

Meet Joseph - SOS55
Joseph will be 11 years old on June 25. He is in class 5B where his best subject is English. His father died and he now lives with his unemployed mother and older sister in the slums. At home he helps by washing clothes. Joseph likes to ride a bike. When he grows up he wants to be a pilot. Would you like to be Joseph's special friend and sponsor?

Now we are offering a limited number of children on a Basic Program Sponsorship. While breakfast, uniform and school supplies are not included, these sponsorships provide an opportunity for children to exchange letters with their sponsors and provide a stipend toward the school's operating costs.

To participate in the Basic Sponsorship Program, choose a child and make a yearly donation of at least $25, $35 or $50, whatever you are comfortable with. You can donate more if you like, knowing that the funds will go toward offsetting the school's operating expenses.

Or you can sponsor Joseph on the Galilee Primary School Sponsorship program,  fees are $12.50/month which now cover a nutritious fruit breakfast, a basic school uniform, basic school supplies and a small stipend toward the school's operating costs. These sponsorships provide vital funding for the child's and school's needs. In return you will receive a photo and letters from your child each term, knowing that you are sending your child to school with fruit in their tummy and a nice uniform and supplies.

Please email to learn how you can help.
