Providing Education...


All week long, Nazareth House has been checking off goals that we have completed thanks to compassionate individuals who dug deep to make it possible.

Today, we received the final funds needed to pay off Lucy and Ann Marie's tuition for this Semester of the new School Year. Lucy wants to be an accountant and Ann Marie, an attorney. Both girls have received top honors from their schooling, thus far. Both young ladies, also, scoring in the highest percentage in the nation on final testing. They are amazing individuals (like their parents, James & Kadijah). Thank you for helping to continue their valuable education. It is exciting to know that we are providing quality education to so many in Freetown and beyond. The NHA Kabala School construction is now complete with only a few minor details that are now being given attention.

We are also inching towards completing the uniform project for the students of Nazareth House Kabala School. Bit by bit. There still remains a few children without uniforms. $25 buys two uniforms for a student (for most, this is their only proper wardrobe). Send to NHA; 2216 Goldsmith Lane, Louisville, KY 40218 or for electronic donation use the paypal link on our website.

We were pleasantly surprised to receive another batch of Medication to treat internal parasites. We will, literally, save many, many lives with this medication.

We have yet to reach the "on the ground needs" money to supply the people we meet while traveling through the country of Sierra Leone. The funding is happening and we are making a strong headway in the right direction. There is still time to help out... GIVE TODAY.
