GHFP Orphan Education Scholarship Campaign
In fact, it is about $1 per day to go to school and an additional $100 for school uniforms, supplies, and shoes (~$450 total). In 2007 we met a group of children who were being kicked out of school due to the lack of fees and pledged to raise money for their school fees. Today, you can make a contribution to keep them in school - no amount is too small!
BELOW YOU CAN MAKE DONATIONS IN MULTIPLES OF $25 OR YOU CAN MAIL A CHECK TO: 2436 N Alabama St, Indianapolis IN 46205.
ALL DONATIONS ARE TAX-DEDUCTIBLE!
YOU can make a difference!
Try pronouncing this handsome young man's name! :)
He has been sleeping at our local leader's house as he has no where else to go. But he is studying hard in school and is excited for his new sponsorship! This will be his fourth year in our program.
Thanks Elizabeth Mendoza!
This handsome young man, Bongani, loves English Literature class as well as music and graphic design! After having to drop out of school for a while due to the lack of fees, he is back in now and thriving! He's almost done with high school - one more year! He loves to make music and design logos...a very creative young man!
Thanks Donna Weeks!
Mazwi is an amazingly strong hard working teenager who has dreams of being a policeman (although he's wanted to be a banker or a race car driver in the past). He is growing up in a child-headed household and is raised by an older brother & sister. He loves science class and is enjoying English as well. He will be entering his third year of high school!
Thank you Mary Bradley!
Philo wants to be a dentist or a journalist when she grows up (but this changes frequently!). She loves religious studies and biology. She loves every minute she is in school and works hard both at home raising her little brother Mazwi and at school. She lives with her little brother Mazwi and her older brother Samkelo.
Thanks Emily and Jeb Crandall!
Sethu is a soft spoken, hardworking and brilliant young boy. He lives alone with an ailing grandmother in a house we built him (he's standing in front of the construction in this photo). He takes care of his grandmother and studies hard - we are super proud of Sethu!
Thanks Lee Asher!
GHFP College & Post Secondary Scholarships:
Lungelo has been a top runner in terms of education since we started sponsoring him 11 years ago. He has bounced around since his parents died and now lives alone with a cousin and has dreams of being an accountant. He said that he had dreams of going to college so he can get a great job and then use his income to help support children like him who would not have been able to go to school without financial assistance. I am so unbelievably proud of him and so in love with his big heart!! University of Swaziland is $3,500 per year for tuition & fees and textbook allowance. He is so close to being done! His graduation is October 2020... who is going to join me in going to celebrate with him in person? ;)
