Real needs.

We had a meeting with the school members today to identify the needs in the school. The biggest request from teachers is sponsorship to keep these children in school. For less than $5.00 per year we could send one of the younger children to school. These children’s parents do not have the means to pay for their education. For less than a burger at the drive thru we can change the life of one child. The children were so excited when they heard that we will do art with them. Their smiles lit up when they heard they would be drawing and painting, something that is not available in school. One of our friends also donated four tables and two benches that we will be carrying down to the school in the morning, as it is much needed. Nicole and Oliver suggested a football match for the children and we arranged that on Saturday we will have a match with the children at a local field a distance away from the school. We went to buy two balls and a pump today, a red one and a blue. They do not have any outdoor activities at the school, due to lack of funds and also space. There is hardly any ground available and no grass in site.
