Thank you for making this #GivingTuesday a success!
This year, our #GivingTuesday campaign supported the Kaziba Orphanage in the Democratic Republic of the Congo. All gifts made to this campaign on and around Tuesday, November 30th will go toward their education and healthcare services and help them to pay their teachers every month, as well as provide needed educational materials and the necessary healthcare for all of their children throughout the year.
This orphanage cares for about 60 children under eight years old who have come from families affected by war and poverty, and provides them with food, medical care, and a safe place to live until they can be adopted into new families who may be able to give them a more secure home. Kaziba was brought to our attention by our Board Member Jilma Meneses, and together we have been supporting the orphanage since January 2021.
Our goal for #GivingTuesday2021 was to raise $10,000 for this orphanage. Here is a breakdown of the impact those funds will have at Kaziba in 2022:
$500 – One year of school supplies for all students (approx. $40 / month)
$2,000 – One year of health care for all children (approx. $165 / month)
$2,500 – One year of salaries for two teachers (approx. $208 / month)
$5,000 – One year of daily nutritious meals for all children (approx $416 / month)
With your combined efforts we raised $15,692 for the children at the Kaziba Orphanage in the Democratic Republic of the Congo.
Please know that in setting a goal of $10,000 for this orphanage, we plan to give these children more support and services next year. With your help, we surpassed that goal! Now we will be able to expand the education and healthcare these little ones will receive.
Thank you for caring!
