I hope this finds you well.
We want to thank each one of you who has donated to help pay our teachers. Together we have raised $290 for this project and we are very grateful. This year, it has become even harder for us to pay our teachers on time. There has been a high cost of living in the country with prices of maize meal, the staple food here retailing at an all time high price of $2.9 per 2kg packet. This has meant that we spend so much of the money we get from the few sponsors to feed the girls leaving none to pay the teachers. Without the teachers, our girls cannot learn.
Your donation has given us hope that there are people out there who believe that qualified and well remunerated teachers are important for the success of our girls at school. For this, we thank you.
We will continue to raise funds here and hope that more people like you will come up and help us raise enough to pay our teachers for even a year.
Thank you so much for your support
God bless you,
