So here in the Philippines school will be starting for the new year on June 9th! Wow its literally right around the corner. Enrollment for school requires (among other things) a payment, uniforms and being able to purchase all your school supplies. Sadly, many children do not go to school because their parents or caretakers cannot afford the fees, uniform or even the school supplies. Can you imagine dropping out of school in fourth grade because your mom needs your help to earn money to feed your family? This is an everyday reality for the people here. We need your prayers for this fundraiser and especially for these families.
Our mission team would like to provide school supplies to help children go to school. Could you please make a donation to our School Supply Fund? We will be purchasing pencils, pens, crayons, notebooks, etc. to provide for the children. These items that to us seem inexpensive can be an enormous cost to the families we know. Sometimes the items on their school list would cost more than a few days wages for their parents. If you would like to help with this fundraiser please send your donations to our mission fund and please remember to put School Supply Fund in the memo line. Thank you!
