They Need Your Help – Please Sponsor a Child at our School

Scores of needy kids in our school in Buchanan are in dire need of sponsorship from individuals and institutions of goodwill to enable them stay in school.

Our school caters to underprivileged kids, but for us to be able to continue to help them, you good individuals and institutions need to choose at least a child to sponsor. They need your help!

We used to post kids’ pictures and their profiles on the website under the section “Sponsor a Student,” but we have decided not to because, in most instances, when the children are placed there it takes time for them to be picked/selected and, when someone finally does, it is discovered that the child has already left the school for some reason.

So, for now, if you are interested in sponsoring a child – and we would like for all of the children to be sponsored by individuals or institutions – we would like you to kindly do the following:

  1. Indicate the sex of the child you want to sponsor;
  2. Indicate the age of the child;
  3. Indicate the class/grade of the child;
  4. Indicate the parental condition of the child – fatherless, motherless, etc
  5. Indicate the living condition of the child; and
  6. Etc

Once you do this, we will select a child for you to support. Remember these kids need your help.

Will you make the decision to support a child today? Your support could give them a better future.

It’s just US$7 per month. Help a needy child today!

The fixing of the additional desks is in fulfilment of our desire to provide seats for all of the students in our school vis-à-vis the huge influx of kids into the school this academic year.

We are especially grateful to our Swedish friends and sponsors who are helping us through the effort of Lena and Anders to help these kids get a better future.


HLF School Fixes New Desks for Kids

A total of fifteen (15) new desks at the cost of US$15 per desk were fixed for the kids last week. The fixing of the desks came as a result of the shortage of seats vis-à-vis the influx of kids this school year.

At present, there are nearly one hundred forty (140) kids in the school, which is more than what we have had in recent years.

In spite of the fifteen new desks, we still need to purchase additional ten to fifteen desks, as the desks are not enough for the kids. In some cases, there are more kids sharing one desk than required.
