Help us raise money to “Make Poverty History through education”

The number of children who need our support is growing. In 2011 Thuto Lesedi Secondary School told WFTISA that all the money we sent had been used to provide lunch for an increasing number of destitute learners. No food packs for home consumption had been given. The outcome is that the orphans who depended on that food had gone without. We believe “A Hungry Child Can Not Learn”
