105 students attended our after school enrichment program. Each day they received two nutirious meals, homework help with tutors, medical and psychological attention, hot showers and the loving care of a family-centered environment.
11 children participated in our attended our full-day early education program, providing meals instruction, playtime, meals and, of course, naps!
68 children received scholarships to attend primary school.
56 students received scholarships to attend middle school.
30 students received scholarships to attend high school.
Scholarships enabled 47 students to attend university.
Our adult literacy program changed the lives of 14 women.
We served 28,750 lunches and 34,500 snacks!
We offered art, exercise and recreation…
And, equally as important, we provided stable employment to 49 people, 10 of whom are mothers in single parent families.
None of these outstanding accomplishments would have been possible without your generous outreach. Please except our most heartfelt gratitude for everything you share to contribute to our ongoing success. We are so grateful for your support!
