Improve adult literacy, English language skills, offer basic computer classes and after school tutoring. Create staff and a medical clinic with regular hours.
To increase Farmer’ s ability to increase food production in order to reduce recurring famine in the region and reduce deforestation and to dig two freshwater wells.
The reason we want to do this campaign is to help the children in Gog, Ethiopia to gain a better education by providing them with school books and supplies and a library. This will help them learn how to read and write by giving them these tools. This is very important to us because of the way I grew up without books and supplies and no opportunity to start my education early.
The area I grew up in does not have a school close by so children are required to walk two hours to and from school. Since children have to walk this long distance, they are not physically able to do this until age 14 so that is when they start school, which greatly impacts the quality of education they can receive.
Providing a better education for these children will have a great impact on their lives by helping them know how to read and write so that they will be able to better provide for their families. People who donate can sponsor a student so that they can become literate.
The way that people can sponsor a student is by donating $15 per month which will lead to that student becoming literate.
We would like to see this start to happen now by setting a goal to raise $3,000 within 30 days. We feel like it will take about one year to teach a student to become literate.
We know that doing this will have a great impact on improving the lives of these children. We believe that improving the literacy of one child benefits the life of not only that child but of an entire family for many generations.
Please consider helping us by donating or sponsoring a child so that we can get that child onto the road to success.
