WALK TO SCHOOL
Walk to School is an initiative we have set up through Hope for Children to pay for the education of children from impoverished backgrounds in Uganda and the Philippines. There are thousands of children in these countries that need your help in order to pay for their schooling.
This is not just down to school fees, many families can not afford the bus fare for their children to be transported to school, or pencils, uniforms, books in order to attend and learn. Walk to School is a simple concept, we aim to pay for a childs entire education, not just for one term or one year, in turn we hope it will help them and their family work towards a brighter future.
Why the Philippines and Uganda? We know that there are many countries throughout the world where families are in desperate need for help to send their children to school, circumstances and chance meetings have lead us to help children in these two countries and there are thousands more that need help in both.
Without the funding raised through Walk to School, these children may not have the chance to go to school and will face a future without the basic education that we take forgranted for ourselves and our own children. It is only £100 to pay for an entire year for one child to attend school the Philippines and £128 in Uganda, including transport, school uniforms, school fees, books, pencils.
We have pledged to fund the education of 100 children over the next 12 years, 50 in Uganda and 50 in The Philippines. This site has been established in order to get help to send more children to school in both of these countries each and every year. Our initial aim is to send another 100 children to school in 2008 by raising further funding from donors over the next few months.
£100 can make a difference now, £1200 can secure a childs future education. So please donate and send a child to school in Uganda or The Philippines now!
Many thanks for your support.
