This is a re-post of a recent update on our students’ needs. With summer plans and trips, it is sometimes difficult to place priority on needs. But, the students’ school year is fast approaching, and we are working hard to meet all needs prior to the start.
If you can be of help individually OR as a group to take ownership of an area, it would be huge for the kids of Korah.
I have 4 kids, and they use a lot of stuff! Multiply that by 250, and you have much, much more stuff. The handy graph below depicts the amount of stuff.
(Ok, that graph isn’t real, but you get the point.)
With the rising costs of caring for the students at the boarding school, P61 made the decision to keep sponsorship costs almost unchanged and break-up the remaining needs into smaller “projects.” We are remarkably blessed with so many friends and fellow organizations determined to help. And, our hope is to partner with others to meet these remaining student needs. (Thanks to TSC for already meeting the needs for shoes – an expensive project!) Because the cost of shipping is high, it is best-case for organizations to raise the funds for the individual projects and the items will be purchased in Ethiopia. Here is the current list of projects:
If you or your organization are interested in assisting P61 meet these needs, you can let us know here. Wes Sellers is overseeing the process of filling these needs. Wes’ email is email@example.com. Feel free to email him with questions or to volunteer for a specific need/project.
As always, we appreciate all of your support and your passion to care for the people of Ethiopia!
