As the children, where I live, have finished up for school holidays today, most of them are delighted to get some time off to relax and have fun.
What if your child had just finished primary school but you couldn’t afford the fees to send them to secondary school? What if they were going to have to go out to find casual work to try to buy some food? What if they only got paid between 10p and 30p per day? We all want the best for our children and we want them to be happy.
We want the same for the hundreds or children who are supported by The William Stewart Foundation. Obviously they need to have their immediate needs met like food and clothing, but education is the key to improving each one of their lives. Whatever they choose to do, we want them to have a choice. To be the best that they can be. To be able to support themselves and their families. So in the future there will be no malnutrition. There will be children who have finished secondary education as well as primary education. They might even have gone on to further education and realise their dreams of being teachers, doctors, nurses, farmers and mechanics. But they need a helping hand….they need someone to invest in their future. It’s less than 85p per day to change a child’s life for the better. Can you help? firstname.lastname@example.org Here are some of the children whose education is over….without your help. Thanks for reading. Sarah x
