Many thanks to our major donors:

Your generosity helps us reach more children and communities and is very much appreciated.

Thank you so much for all you do! You are not only helping the students, you are helping the teachers as well. Practicing skills that we do in class with these kids is really helping to push them along through the standards and help them reach their full potential.”
