Eager Eyes Follow Along ...

With their bottoms scrunched together on the tippy classroom benches, four to five kids at a time hover over the same textbook to follow along with the daily lesson. 

Their teacher tap, tap, taps on the chalk board as one child stands to read from the textbook, in rhythm with the cadence their teacher is tapping.  Eager eyes follow along in the book, and the kids try to scrunch closer together to see better.

At Kind Hearts in Ethiopia, 200 children are attending class every day knowing full well how important their education is.  Knowing that it is a rare and wonderful opportunity and one that will help them step themselves and their families out of poverty.  Their eyes glow with the possibilities and they take notes with little nubs of pencils in notebooks that have every square inch of space filled with their tiny hand-writing - trying to preserve every precious piece of paper.

As the new school year gets underway in Ethiopia, textbooks are in short supply as class sizes grow and the pages of the books are becoming torn and tattered from over-use.

Let's provide our kids in Ethiopia with the resources they need to get the best possible education.  With grades pre-school thru 5th grade attending Kind Hearts school, we can purchase textbooks for each of the grades and provide a text book for each child!! 

Half of the funds have already been raised ... Would you please consider making a donation to fully fund this project?  Please click on the link below to make a donation and see our progress on this fund.  Click here

We need to raise about $4000 for text books for all grade levels and half of those funds have already been raised.  Would you help finish this fund?

When is the big trip?! I can't wait to see some photos from your trip. All of the children are so beautiful. I will be praying for safe travels for everyone and a wonderful visit! I hope the children love all of their care packages.
