HELP RAISE $10,000 TO BUILD PRESCHOOL IN MONAPO, MOZAMBIQUE!
What will the money go towards?
Every dollar donated will go directly to the construction of a new two-room preschool. An improvement from the current mud hut with thatched roof, the new preschool will be concrete with a tin roof and glass windows so that the children are able to remain safe and secure during the rainy season. Separate latrines for boys and girls will be constructed along with hand-washing devices. In the afternoon, when the preschool closes, one of the rooms will remain open to the community and serve as a Child Development Center where children can come to read books and receive homework help. In addition to improving the preschool structure, we hope to raise enough money to buy over 200 Portuguese books and educational games and toys.
Why should I donate?
Presently, there is one preschool in Monapo with over 70 children. The preschool’s only teacher, Samuel, has worked tirelessly to create a safe and fun environment for the children. Unfortunately, the one-room hut and single latrine are insufficient and Samuel does not have the money or resources to expand and improve his school. Additionally, the preschool has an extremely limited supply of toys and educational materials. Imagine growing up never having had a book read to you or sending your child to a school lacking adequate bathroom facilities. Your donations will go directly towards improving the learning conditions of Mozambique’s most at risk children.
