WE NEED YOU! Our next service-learning trip to Swaziland will be November 22nd, we'd love to have you and currently have 2 spots left!

Orphan Education Sponsorship!

In Swaziland, education is not free.

In fact, it is about $1 per day to go to school and an additional $100 for school uniforms, supplies, and shoes ($450 total).  In 2007 we met a group of orphaned children who were being kicked out of school due to the lack of funding and pledged to raise money for their school fees.  Today, you can make a contribution to keep them in school - no amount is too small! Because education is proven to be the most successful way out of poverty (Half the Sky, Nicholas Kristof 2009), these children need schooling to ensure a brighter future.
