NHA REPORT: 7 Days of Updates (Day 2)

DAY TWO:  NHA School completes another year of success!!!!!

The parents of each class eagerly wait outside the NHA School in Kabala, Sierra Leone to hear their child's name called 

and watch that child receive his grades for the school year just ended.   

How excited  they are.    

How proud they are.  

Just five short years ago, there was no school 

in this area and children either helped their parents at the farm or walked miles to a school.   

The children are happy 

and healthy, comparatively and the whole educational experience 

has been a tremendously favorable outcome for all involved - students, parents, teachers - the entire village. 

Without the generous donations of those who support Nazareth House Apostolate and their work in Sierra Leone, none of this could have been possible.   

But because of the compassion you have, the work continues and everyday this village in Kabala is working towards self sufficiency.  

Because of you, children have brighter futures.

We've got a long way to go, but we're making progress.    

Thank you all for your prayers, love and support. 

As school enjoys a Summer Break, we consider the needs of the next school semester.  

We need your help for NHA to continue to  provide good education to more students.  

We'll be needed to provide more uniforms and expand the classrooms.  

This takes funding, as always, let's spread the word. 

Invite your friends, relatives and neighbors to be a part of this wonderful example of love.  Matthew 25:35...
