Thanks to our latest donors, we are on our way to reaching our goal of $1,970 for our Gambian student sponsorship and other programs. We have $1,561 or 79 percent of the $1,970 needed. We raised most of the money via Facebook, followed by our own platform and GoFundMe. School starts Monday, September 26. We need your donation by Saturday, September 17.
We already thankfully overreached our goal of $200 with $210 for the Library Fund and we are only $19 short of our $250 goal for general overhead expenses. We also need two sponsorships for girls and three sponsorships for boys. The Port of Harlem Gambian Education Partnership has some expected donations that should come in and make this another successful fundraising year.
Our latest donors include: Ivan Brown, Shari Curtis, Anonymous (Washington, Douglass Commonwealth), Avis Mathews (Chicago, Illinois), Pamela Morris (Detroit), Carol Bryant (New York City), and George Gunn (Dinwiddie, Virginia).
To sponsor a male or female is only $80 per year. With your donation, each student gets: a uniform, shoes, lunch (for the year), exercise books, book rental, study fees, and a school bag. Each $80 donor will get a video thank you from the child(ren) they are sponsoring. You can also donate any amount to the male or female scholarship fund and any amount to the Building Libraires fund and the General Overhead fund.
