2011 GHFP Update: November 30th

Lungelo Mhlanga

Sophomore at eLangeni High wanting to be a doctor and smart enough to fulfill his dreams with a little help from his US friends
Give the Gift of Giving this Holiday Season!
Give the gift of an education for an orphan in honor of a friend or family member and they will be thanked by the Swazi child. Choose a child your friend will love (or let us choose the most needy for you).  When making your contribution, please tell us who the gift is "in honor of", and your friend or family member will be notified of your thoughtful gift and later hear back from the child him/herself!

We just received word from our friends in Swaziland that one of our orphans Lungelo Mhlanga lost his father, and last remaining care-giver, in September.  He is receiving counseling and support from the Princess Chief and our dear friend and village facilitator Bheki, but is struggling with being all alone.  Lungelo is first in his class and is also the school leader with dreams of being a doctor and caring for others.  We at GHFP have no doubt that this strong little boy will make it on his own... it's just not fair that he has to.  If you would like to donate to Lungelo's education, or to any other child living in similar circumstances, please contact us!

October Party for a Purpose

Looking back on an eventful year of supporting a baker's dozen orphans of child-headed households, 23 HIV-positive orphans in an impoverished center, and two rural community schools relying on us for support - GHFP realizes that none of this could be possible without your support.  Whether it has been spreading the word, financial contributions, or warm thoughts in our direction - we THANK YOU!  As October turned into November, we were able to host a successful "party" to increase awareness of our Swazi orphans, met with our good friend Swazi Prince Fikeveni and his beautiful wife, and recruited Purdue students for our 2012 service-learning trips.  We are forever grateful to our friends and family (YOU) for everything you have enabled us to do, and we are looking forward to the 2012 year!
