55 kids need sponsors - can you help?

 We desperately need people to sponsor a child, from abject poverty, who is only in school because they have a free place at Happy House School on our Dr Danwata Scholarship Scheme.
Each of the students pictured here with Mama Sue needs a sponsor. 
Of our 93 scholarship students, we have 55 without sponsors.
 Not just to help support their education financially but also to become a friend who will, through emails, letters and postcards, open another window on their world and to encourage them in their studies.
It costs just £20 a month to sponsor a scholarship student and to light up a life.
£20 provides all a youngster needs - schooling, uniform, books, PE kit plus nourishing breakfast, lunch and snacks.
We do now ask parents to buy shoes as Mama believes they should be encouraged to make a commitment in this way.
Young people also receive deodorants, toothpaste and toothbrushes, sanitary pads for the older girls and shoe polish and a brush.
To cut the risk of fires and ill health from kerosene lamps, we give them solar lanterns so they can read at home, in safety, when darkness falls.
Our scholarship scheme is for children whose need is proven and who show a commitment to learn.
We need your support NOW
 Please tell your friends about us, encourage them to sponsor; hold a fundraising event or make a one-off donation.
Together we ARE changing lives and together we will change many more
