More lives will be changed for the long term!

 
 
I am thankful to be able to report that ALL of the funds to build new classrooms at Kind Hearts have been raised and the project is underway!! Blueprints are being finalized, a survey needs to be done and permits need to be obtained but the project is moving forward thanks to YOU!

In addition - as January got underway, donations continued to come in to the tune of $11,000. Our budget to fully furnish and equip the new classrooms (and replace the old rickety, broken desks and chairs in the current building) was $10,500. Amazing!! More than enough to fully furnish both buildings!!

Your supoort and commitment to these kids is so appreciated and has changed everything for the kids already attending!! With the completion of the new classrooms, we will be able to enroll more children and change more lives for the long term!

THANK YOU for your commitment to make a difference for kids in Ethiopia! As the project gets underway, I will update my blog with photos along the way!
 
And just as an update ... remember the Christmas Cards created by Robyn Davidson to help raise funds for the new building?  That project raised about $2,500 for the new school!
