We have written before about our Smart Kids education sponsorship program. The program supports 33 students who are caught up in a multi generational cycle of poverty and hard labour in brick factories.
One student Cha and her family actually lived in a small dark corner on the factory floor. Her mother has lived there for 27 years since she was nine years old. She told us a few years ago that she had two dreams. One was to see her daughter graduate from grade 12 and escape a life of hard labour that she has endured, that dream will be realized soon as Cha is now half way through grade eleven thanks to KIDS donors. The other dream was to have a home of her own and to live outside the brick factory.......this dream will come to a reality very soon.
We started the homes a month ago and the LUSH team of 23 arrived to help finish them. We will send along and update on their work and of the completed housing project in a few days.
Wishing you and yours all the very best,
Rick and Adrianne
