Children Needing Sponsors

If you visit the Plant-a-Book International website, you will see the faces of children filled with hope -- hope that they will be sponsored!  For only $12.50, $20, or $30 per month, you can make a tremendous difference in the life of a child.  Please visit our site and consider how you can help one of these kids.


....and so many more!  These kids long for a letter from someone who
 cares, someone who will encourage them as they strive for an education.  Could it be you?

Buy a Brick Campaign

The classrooms serving the Galilee Primary School students were intended to be temporary. As primitive as they are, they have actually served our kids for many years now.  The walls and roof consist of sheet metal with rough wood pole supports, and one wall in each room is half sheet metal and half chicken wire to allow for airflow and a little light. The state of deterioration is very evident. The roofs are leaking, causing flooding during the rainy season. The children need and deserve a healthy and appropriate learning environment.
We would like to replace the classrooms with actual classroom buildings.  Each classroom costs $5737 to build. We would like to build six ground floor classrooms to begin and then eventually add second floor classrooms to those. This is the style of classroom that will replace the sheet metal and chicken wire ones:
Thanks to donations received through KKIN UK and Plant-a-Book International we have completely paid for one classroom to be constructed and are on our way to funding a second room!  Can you join us in this campaign? Any donation amount is welcome and will go a long way to creating adequate classrooms so our students can get the most from their education.
