Give Hope, Fight Poverty's (GHFP) mission is to foster philanthropy domestically by designing service-learning programs that engage US students with communities abroad and work together to educate, empower and lift orphaned and vulnerable children out of poverty.

*NOTE: This will be our last GHFP eNewsletter until our team returns to the US in August.  Until then Annie may be blogging if she can find internet access: http://swazilandannie.blogspot.com/ 

GHFP teams in Swaziland this July!

This summer we will have 3 separate teams traveling to Swaziland for 10 days each to implement our summer programming:

* GHFP Educational Sponsorship:  We will be, for the 4th year, providing school fees for 13 orphans of child-headed households in eLangeni Village! 

* FOODOM Feeding Program:  Thanks to the generosity of a private donor, we will be partnering with eLangeni Secondary School to provide a daily meal to the 620 students including our sponsored orphans. We will also include a weekend feeding program for the most malnourished children of child-headed households. 

* GHFP Computer and English Literacy Program:  We are purchasing 10 computers for a rural primary school that recently obtained access to electricity.  We will be installing JumpStart programs including reading, critical thinking, science, geography, math, and typing educational games. 

* Selula Sandla Playground: We will be building and painting a basketball court and soccer field for the HIV-positive orphans of Selula Sandla Orphanage.
