DAGO ORPHANAGE SCHOOL SCHOLARSHIP DRIVE
We hope that your new year has started off on a good
note. As the new year begins, we put behind
all the worries of the past and start focusing on the best of the days
We had our annual fundraiser to support the 19 children in high school,
to the tough times that people have faced, we did not raise as much as
we had hoped. We believe GOD has a reason for everything as they occur
and He will help us find a way.
still stand together, and hope by the
end of 2011, the 19 kids will be put through a successful year of
school. In order for all 19 kids to continue, we need to raise $9,000. In Kenya, only kids that
can afford to pay for education after the eighth grade get to
continue. Most of the children we are sponsoring are HIV-affected
children who have lost one or both parents to HIV/AIDS.
To sponsor a
child to high school for one year it costs approximately $600 (about
$12/week). If this is too much for you to pay at one time, it can be
divided into 3 semesters as follows:
$200 due by January 15, April 1 and
Tax-deductible contributions can be made payable to "Village Volunteers"
and sent c/o Susan Odoyo, 232 Fernwood Drive, Evansville, Indiana 47711
so that we can track our fundraising goal.
