Help with School Fund
The School Fund, a nonprofit dedicated to ensuring educational opportunities in difficult places, has partnered with Child Hope to help us raise money to support the education of the older children in our orphanage. Currently, 24 Child Hope students are funded through The School Fund. Of these, 14 are fully funded, but 10 still have needs to be met by Sept 3. Each of the children with needs is listed here.
In order for these children to be able to complete the next year of school, we need your assistance. You can visit the child’s profile on The School Fund site to help fund their next year of school, track funding progress, see a summary of school costs for 2013-2014 school year, and write to the student in their online journal. We greatly appreciate all of your assistance, prayers, and encouragement.
