Back to School with Dreams for Orphans

It’s that time of year again for pencils, lunchboxes, and homework assignments. When getting caught up in the stresses a new school year brings, it’s important to remember those less fortunate who may not have the chance to attend school like children in our own neighborhoods. This year, lend a helping hand to a child in need. Dreams for Orphans is looking for sponsorships for children who want to attend kindergarten this year in Ghana, Africa. Help us achieve proper education for all—children need to learn!

These children, all from Great Mission International, are looking for sponsors:

Your corporate group or family can sponsor a child for $500 (or $45 monthly increments) for an entire year. This small donation will cover the student’s annual school-related costs including tuition, uniforms, books, supplies, and lunch. These critical pieces are just the beginning of a bright future for each child attending school.

Dreams for Orphans is also seeking donations for portions of school needs. You can sponsor one of the following:
Annual Lunch Program: $150
Books and supplies: $100
Uniforms: $50

Don’t forget to support Dreams for Orphans when shopping on Amazon. Use AmazonSmile for your back to school supplies and select us as your charity of choice. Thank you!

Liam and Claire, two upcoming 8th grade students at St. Anne School in Seattle, collected school supplies for the children in Ghana. The supplies were packed and hand delivered to the orphanages, villages, and schools on the recent Youth Ambassador trip. What a great example of youth in action and true back to school spirit!

Please contact info@dreamsfororphans.org to inquire about a sponsorship, or click here to donate to Dreams for Orphans. Thank you for your generous support— anything helps!

About the Author
My 24 years as a flight attendant have enabled me to travel and see much of the world. When I started going to Africa my passion was born to help the less fortunate and show my own 3 children this imbalance. I wanted them to know they had a responsibility to others as they grow up in a world that most things are readily accessible to them and are not to most the world. It is easy to fall in love with children in Africa. It is more difficult to find appropriate ways to help. Education was by far the first tool we knew could be powerful and effective. Combining this with improved environment, enables them to grow and thrive with food, shelter, medical care and most of all love.I travel to Ghana as a flight attendant monthly and enjoy taking my children on working trips as well as our own vacation time. Being on the ground making sure the DFO funds are carefully dispatched is rewarding and I am compensated by their huge smiles and hugs every time I visit. Seven years have gone by so fast and I cannot imagine my life without DFO and all the children. As Dreams continues to grow I relish the fact that the number of orphans we are helping is increasing. We are able to expand to more orphanages and provide education and safe environments to those orphans who deserve a rich and happy life.
