The landscape of education is significantly different this year. If children are not allowed back into the classroom, the classroom is moved to an online program. But this requires children to have a phone, or some other device to participate. This has proven to be a difficult challenge for our homes to walk through.
We have shared this need with supporters, and have been blessed by those who have stepped up to the need. Through the support we have received, we’ve been able to supply some of our homes with a few new electronic devices, such as computers, phones, and printers!
With every new device, a child is able to continue with their education, and take one more step towards their future. Education is of course very important for helping a child walk out of their previous poverty, but it is also vital in giving them the chance to learn, to improve, to grow, and to be inspired. These devices are helping these kids be confident, and to be everything they were made to be.
Now that children are able to continue receiving their education and moving up to higher grades, the homes are still faced with educational costs. To help cover these costs, we have an education fund, as well as an education sponsorship program called ‘Running the Race’.
