Children at risk, Education
Give the gift of a good start in life!
In Guinea-Bissau, where the annual per capita income is only $1,090, mothers have few educational options for their children.
EMM has partnered with local people in the villages of Catel, Guinea-Bissau, to start a preschool where children can get a good start on reading, writing, and arithmetic. But most importantly, the children learn that Jesus loves them and has good plans for their lives.
Village parents pay $10 per school year in tuition (a significant expense for them), but this is not enough to cover all costs. The preschool has a current financial need of $2,000.
Charitable gifts received will be used to outfit school rooms, make uniforms, purchase school supplies, and supplement the salaries of the the preschool teachers.
$54.50 provides one student with a uniform, books, and supplies, and supplements teachers’ salaries
$720 covers the cost of paint, window screens, cabinet locks, general care, and security for the preschools
