Every day over 500 poor children and orphans in Mulanga village wake up without a school to attend and those who do have to walk miles to the nearest primary school which has no adequate school facilities. However, many miss out on school because they can’t afford scholastic materials and fees. We received donations through GlobalGiving USA, ISS Erasmus Rotterdam – Welfare Office, FIS Global Amsterdam and private individuals which meant over $1000 was available for these children to attend school at Mulanga primary school! These donations enabled over 16 children to join school for a term–and, we purchased new school uniforms, new shoes, books, pens, pencils, mathematical set, and the school fees which all enabled them to attend lessons without any disturbance. These donations also helped these children to get meals at school (breakfast and lunch). We made huge a difference in the lives of these children.
