THE STORY:

Joy to the World Kindergarten, Namibia, Africa

In Namibia, Africa, children under 7 usually do not have the chance to go to pre-school.  In 2008, a wonderful, loving Anglican nun named Sister Gertrude saw that many of the children in the Owambo Tribe were spending these important, formative years alone in their huts without any chance to learn to read, write, sing or play together.  With no backing and no supplies, she bravely invited the village to send their children to a brand-new kindergarten called “Joy to the World".  Today, with the generous support of friends and strangers alike, Sister Gertrude has a thriving kindergarten which is making great strides to become self-sustaining.  In 2018, the school will expand to include first grade.  Each year, more than 100 children are given a head start on the path to a good education, with a goal of fostering future professionals and leaders of Namibia.  Funds are needed to cover the 2018 school budget, provide solar power and to improve the school's internet capability.   

From recent contributions, the school has renovated a large hall which Sister Gertrude envisions using as a community center for adult education and entertainment.  By selling tickets to these events, additional income will be raised funds for the school. 

We urge you to help us by donating any amount.  Please share this link with your friends, family and Facebook, please ask them to do the same.  This is a unique opportunity to support a project run on a small, personal scale with no large organization skimming off even one dollar. The donations are tax-deductible, handled by the Outreach Commission at St Peter's Episcopal Church in Del Mar.
