The program in Malwai is fairly new. United With Hope is partnering with Chipambo Primary School to help construct classrooms and provide them with supplies for better learning. The ratio of teachers to children is approx 80:1. It is common for children not to receive any or little education, particularly girls. UWH is asking supporters to pledge $5 a month towards Chipambo Primary.
With goodies and letters that are sent, you usually get a photo of the child with them
Along with feeding the children, there is also opportunities to further help the children. At Easter, there was a hygine kit drive, to supply all children with relevent supplies. For approx $5 per child they earch received a hygine kit. In India our dollars go a long way!! Here is Soniya with her kit:
Nani - age 9
Prajna- age 9
Sujeeth and Durga are two 'regular' people. BUT, they see the needs of their community and have God's heart to help. For years they have opened their small, ordinary home to children who have been orphaned or abandoned. They currently have 18 children living in the home along with their own daughters. There are a few new children set to join them in June- one of which is Gowripriya, who we have commited to sponsor. This program is either $10 a month for either Home or School sponsorship, or $20 a month for both.
