Did you know that Knowledge is Power?
Did you know that our children’s future,(regardless of circumstances surrounding their births) need to be fueled with Passion, Diligence and Excellence?
For Africans, education is a crucial part of freeing themselves from poverty. With deteriorated school buildings, inadequate school supplies, limited teachers and no transportation to and from schools as well as finances for school uniforms etc; African children and families face a very huge barrier in receiving an education.
With access to proper education, our children and families stand a chance of overcoming poverty.
The Adassa Foundation is a US based nonprofit organization whose mission is to provide an atmosphere of hope, healing and restoration for the children of Africa. Despite their extraordinary circumstances, they will have a brighter future because YOU CARE!
What better way to achieve this, than to reach out to one of these loved ones during this holiday season.
While many of our children in the western world are thinking of how many toys they will get this holiday season; our African children simply want a chance to survive the harsh reality of incredible lack in their lives.
While some of our children in the western world are asking for the latest toys in vogue; our African children are simply asking for a chance at healthy living; an opportunity to live to its fullest and a means to quality education this coming year.
