£171.32 Raised for Children in Crisis

£171.32 Raised for Children in Crisis

Congratulations to the student council for organising events which raised an incredible £171.32 for Children in Crisis.

On behalf of Children in Crisis I would like to thank you for your kind donation. To a charity of our size, the support of individuals such as yourself is invaluable. Children in Crisis was established in 1993 to give children in some of the world’s poorest countries the educational opportunities they need to transform their lives. At the heart of our work is the belief that education is an essential tool to over come poverty and social deprivation. The following quote was taken during a speech given by a teenage girl called Esperance at the opening of her new school, Mugorore Primary School which the support of people like you has enabled Children in Crisis to build for this community in the Bibokoboko district, Democratic Republic of Congo. ‘This school means everything to me. Look at it! To see a school which has a roof and good foundations which has desks for us to sit at and books which shelters us from the rain… is like a dream. When I heard about the plans to build a school here, I didn’t believe it possible. But now it is here, I feel so proud. This new school has given me a chance to get an education and have a better life. Ascanti Sana Thank-you.’ Esperance, Mugorore Primary School The funds you kindly given will make a substantial difference to children just like Esperance. On behalf of our beneficiaries, and in Esperance’s words “Ascanti Sana” thank you once again for your support. Best wishes, Katharine Tinker
