WHY IT MATTERS
‘Education is the key’ – without it there is no way these needy people, who have been decimated by the HIV and AIDS pandemic, can move forward. Sadly the education in rural villages is inadequate. For the past eight years Butterfly Tree has built new schools, enabling children to go to school for the very first time, added classrooms to existing schools, installed bore holes and latrines and provided seeds for sustainable feeding programs. Once we have built a school we hand it over to the Ministry of Education in order for them to provide the necessary trained teachers. Unfortunately schooling is not free and from grade seven school and exam fees have to be found. For orphans, having enough funds to go to school is virtually impossible. Your redemption allows us to finance exam fees for one such orphan in need. Help us give an orphan a chance at a brighter future.
