DAGO ORPHANAGE SCHOOL SCHOLARSHIP DRIVE
We are having our annual fundraiser to support the children in high school. 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 2014, the 19 kids will be put through a successful year of
school. In order for all 19 kids to continue, we need to raise $10,000. 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 $650 (about
$12.50/week). If this is too much for you to pay at one time, it can be
divided into 3 semesters as follows:
$250 due by January 15, $200 by April 1 and $200 by August 1.
Contributions can be made payable to "Friends of Dago"
and sent c/o Susan Odoyo, 313 Greenleaf Drive, Evansville, Indiana 47710 so that we can track our fundraising goal.
