Education is a huge component in our strategy to give hope. Many families in Africa can’t afford to pay the school fees required by government schools. One of the most horrific tragedies in this is that the children who aren’t in school often prostitute themselves or scrounge in the garbage dump in search of food.
When we present them with a scholarship to go to school, their world is changed immediately. Their opportunity for a childhood is restored. Their opportunity to dream of a future is born. Instead of “IF I grow up, I want to be a teacher,” they begin to say, “WHEN I grow up, I want to be a teacher.”
Children’s Cup’s Back-to-School Project is more than just a cool way to get involved. It is changing worlds by giving hope.
If you want to make a significant impact today, consider giving $150 to cover the school fees for a child for a whole school year. Or maybe you can cover several children’s school fees. What’s important is that you do what God puts on your heart to do.
We’re working with churches in the USA to combine couple this effort with a local outreach to their own community’s needy children. While you help kids in Africa go back to school, you can help kids in your community at the same time! Contact our team at 225.673.4505 or email us for details. We’ll work with you to design a project that’ll be a huge win for your church or group and the community you serve as well as Africa!
