Change in Donation Options!
July 01, 2016
I’m staying in South Africa for 2016 and very likely until mid-2017 when my visa will be up for renewal (whether I stay past that depends on the SA Visa department). I’m very excited about the work I’m doing! I truly have joy from the work and kids. I love seeing the value I’m adding to the school. Work the school desperately needs, but can’t afford. I’m not excited about having to fundraise again for my salary though! :) My budget is ~$16,550 for all of 2016 (~$1,380/month) at the current FX rate.
The current goal is $28,100 because $11,460 of the amount raised was for my first campaign.
I will continue to work as a volunteer and help manage the school’s operations and resources and any other ways God wants to use me. Check out jadamcochran.tumblr.com to see what I've been working on!
A little about Hope Schools...
Most all of the children at the school are from the surrounding townships and are either infected or affected with HIV/AIDs. It started in 2004 as a preschool out of the Sophumulela Centre HIV/AIDs clinic and has added a grade each year and now has up to 6th grade.
I will be managing the day-to-day operations and resources of the school, finding ways to make it more efficient, helping coordinate projects for visiting mission teams, coordinating with the board on the new construction as the school grows, and any other responsibilities the school needs.
