Meet Lydia!

Furaha care for the physical, emotional and spiritual health of the children.

Your dollars are in action each and every day, as our partners make plans for the current times and the future.

The hiring of a school nurse to serve all students in the primary and the secondary school is allowing students the opportunity to be seen by a medical professional, a service that would not be offered otherwise in most homes.

Hear from Lydia below…

From Furaha… You are needed

Welcome, friend

Thank you for joining the movement to empower children out of extreme poverty.

In Furaha our friends face challenges that need your help.

Furaha is currently implementing the rigorous Competency Based Curriculum that requires students to produce work that tests their skills using digital resources. In order for students to be successful, parents are also asked to play a role by providing technology for their students, though this can be problematic as families lack the digital resources to help their students.

Amidst the challenges, your giving, and your continued giving allows for the students of Furaha to access laptops so students can access the digital literacy needed to show competency.

Donate today so our partners can continue to supply the students of Furaha with the proper resources to meet the growing demands of learners.

You are needed.

It’s not time to rest

Rest or complacency should not be in sight when people all over our world do not have food or basic necessities to survive.

1.9 billion people live in extreme poverty. Behind this startling statistic are people, people who work tirelessly to provide food for themselves and their children. Let’s stand along side the poor, let’s stand beside Risper.

Your giving lets her know she has a community.

Your giving lets her know she is not alone.

Your giving gives her hope.

Let’s not rest until extreme poverty is kicked off the face of the planet.
