Give a man a fish, feed him for a day. Teach a man to fish and you feed him for a lifetime. We often hear quoted in schools but so often, humanitarian aid is directed at giving a man a fish. This leaves him and his family reliant on handouts.
Children love to dream of the future. So often, however, they see it as simply that. A dream. The unobtainable. The unreachable. It is our goal to bring those dreams into reality for our students. To provide them the access to education they require to bring their dreams into reality.
We recognize that not all of our clients are strong in academics and some of their dreams may be unrealistic. If they want to be a doctor but are failing biology yet getting honours in agriculture we can help steer those dreams in the right direction.
We believe that students who want to be doctors have just as much value in society as those that want to be farmers. Lawyers are no more important than plumbers, and bankers are no more important than dairy farmers. Everyone has a role to play and dreaming of a blue collar job is no less honourable than dreaming of a white collar job. We love to celebrate all of our graduates equally.
We are so excited because recently we have been seeing our students graduated not only from high school, but from college as well. Dreams are being made real, and donors such as yourself are helping to make that a reality..
