‘Back to School’ time means an increased need for sponsors!
School starts here in Burkina on October 1st. So, this is the time to be preparing for the first day of school.
This year we are adding two new classrooms to our schools. We will be running a full six grades in our primary school and we are adding 9th grade to our secondary school.
When all of the excitement settles the reality of the additional challenges of paying teachers’ salaries, equipping new classrooms, buying books and supplies, and feeding over 300 children a nutritious meal everyday becomes very pressing.
Our schools are primarily funded by our child sponsorship program. If each child in our schools is sponsored, we can pay our teachers a competitive salary, we can provide a challenging learning environment in each classroom, and we can feed our children a nutritious lunch everyday. (Some of our children otherwise will only get one meal per day.)
Would you please consider sponsoring one of our children? Do you think that your youth group or Sunday school class or home group would consider sponsoring a child?
I can say with all of my heart that ‘sponsorship changes the life of a child’. We still have many children in the orphanage and in our schools who need a sponsor. Would you please consider sponsoring one of our children? Do you think that your youth group or Sunday school class or home group would consider sponsoring a child?
If you are ready to take a child into your heart, check out our website (www.sheltering-wings.org), click on sponsor a child on my blog, or call Sheltering Wings at 314 635 6316.
Here are just two of the children in our primary school needing a sponsor.
