Some of you may have already received and responded to our annual appeal in the mail. For those of you who haven’t received or responded to this appeal yet, this is a gentle reminder that each year Everyone’s Child asks for support for our Orphan Feeding Program and Secondary School Sponsorship Program. To keep these programs running, we rely on the generosity of people like you, who understand that it is through consistent, generous contributions that we can feed and educate these orphaned and vulnerable children each year. We are now asking for your support for these initiatives.
A Daily Meal and an Education
Despite pandemic restrictions, this past year EC was able to provide a daily meal and an education for close to 700 orphaned students in Kenya and India. This was all possible because of the generous donations from people who give on a monthly basis or gave during last year’s Annual Appeal.
School Supplies, Uniforms, and a Daily Meal
In the coming year, EC will continue providing daily meals to students at six different schools throughout Kenya. This program costs $25 per school year for each student. With the help of our partners, we also plan to sponsor up to 40 orphaned secondary students, providing them with school supplies, uniforms, and a daily meal. The annual cost to sponsor one secondary student is $200. We also plan to support up to 25 vulnerable students in northern and southern India who want to attend school.
Asking for Your Support
This year, the Board of Directors and I are asking for your support to help us raise $35,000, enabling us to sustain, build and grow our current programs.
If you would like to participate in this goal, donations can be securely made online by clicking here.
Everyone’s Child is a registered 501 C3 corporation, and 90% of our administrative costs are covered by those on the Board of Directors, therefore close to 100% of your donation will go directly to our programs.
As always, thank you for your support for Everyone’s Child.
With warmest wishes,
Ruth T. Young, Ed.D.
Everyone’s Child – they belong to all of us.
