But around this time of year, Foundation 18 needs a bulk injection of cash to help fund the Education Outreach program Cate runs – enough money to send 70 children to school. These are for the children in the area that don’t quite need to go to the orphanage, but are financially disadvantaged enough that they can’t make school on their own.
It only costs $65 to send one child to school for a whole year.
that $65 goes to administration/building fees on enrolment and the annual tuition for each child, while also covering things like uniforms, stationery, backpacks, learning resources and costs of excursions and incursions where appropriate. Sometimes they even go as far as to contribute to transport costs to get a child to and from school, and in extreme cases will also deliver a monthly quota of food staples to ensure that the child is well nourished and able to learn.
I like to think there are a bunch of you out there who won’t hesitate to give to something like this. I also know there are some of you who would love to help, but can’t afford it (In that case, feel free to donate even five dollars – it all helps!). Together, we can do Good Things.
Thanks so much, guys. I really love that we can make a difference.
