This Giving Tuesday, we are thrilled to invite you to give towards making two dreams around the Children's Home a reality - one, our Study Room and two, building a thatched roof. Every dollar given this Giving Tuesday will go to making this happen around the Home.
#1 — The Study Room — $7,000
We have a room that has been set aside as our Study Room. We would love to see it filled with desks, computers, a printer, a few bookshelves and books. We want to provide the children with more opportunities and some of this includes knowledge on the computer and better ways to research. Our Study Room would be the perfect place for this. A quiet room where the kids can go to get some work done; it may comes as a surprise but that can be hard to come by in a Home of 32 kids.
The room needs everything from paint and furniture to the computers and books. The estimated $7,000 would cover this renovation.
#2 — The Thatched Roof — $3,000
A few years ago, we made some of the space on our roof more usable by creating a roof-top garden. In fact, through our Giving Tuesday campaign in 2015, you made this possible. This year, we want to make the other side of our roof more usable with building a thatched roof and installing furniture where the family can spend time together — whether, studying, worship nights, Saturday classes, or just hanging out and doing life together. Our roof is like many people’s backyard patio — and THIS will make it just the place to be.
The thatched roof is estimated to cost about $3,000. We will hire a local Haitian contractor for the job.
Total Giving Tuesday GOAL = $10,000
