I've not included the name of the school, because to do that, I'll need School Board clearance. However, this school NEEDS so much help. By 'help' I do not refer to its curriculum - the pass rate of the students is over 90%, and every competition the school enters, they emerge 1st or 2nd.
This school, which has a student population of approximately 100, is in dire need of a completed building. One with a Science Lab, a gym and supplies, a stocked and updated Library, Showers for the girls, a proper Home Economics Lab, an outfitted Music Room, and a Lunch Room (or a common seating area, at least).
Now, one may ask, "If the school needs all these things, how are they functioning?" Exactly!!! The teachers at this school are so very dedicated - I really can't even amply put it into words.
Because of the size of the classes, each child is able to receive the exact attention needed to excel, and they do. However, I believe that their journey - both the teachers' and the students'- could be, should be an easier one.
I have seen firsthand, how those children throw themselves into their education. Many of them enter the school feeling hopeless, and some parents even enroll their children as a last resort, but each child leaves with an exhilarating love for life and its possibilities.
Alas, the school, while it is a private one, is funded for the most part, by the fees parents pay. Being located in the largest and significantly least wealthy region of our country, some, sadly, are not able to pay those fees, even though it’s amongst the lowest in the country. It’s a struggle to even pay the teachers sometimes, so the building takes an indefinite backseat, continuously.
Please help me, to help my daughter's school. Presently, the building is not even sealed. They NEED help. Will you, help? We will be forever grateful for your kindness, and do all in our power, to pay it forward.
