Board members Arnica and Nicole, along with update coordinator Rita and volunteer Maryam, will be travelling to Ethiopia in April. We will be visiting with our House 2 House families, and working on the transition of our new partnership.
Currently, Vulnerable Children Society is paying for school uniforms and registration fees for our House 2 House kids in the four communities we serve, including the kids we’ll be serving through the new Guder Educational Center. However the children need additional school supplies, so we’ll be filling every last nook and cranny of our suitcases with pens and notebooks from Canada.
Over the next few weeks, we’ll be collecting donations from VCS friends and supporters, to take with us to Ethiopia. Can you help us out?
We are collecting:
School supplies: Lined notebooks, pencils and pencil sharpeners, pens, pencil crayons, crayons, glue and scissors
Of course, all school work and no play is just no fun at all, so we’re saving room in our suitcases for small toys for the kids too!
Small Toys: Stuffed animals, dinky cars, hair barrettes, small balls, deflated soccer balls and pumps. No guns or violent toys, or toys that require batteries, please.
If you can help, please send your donations to Arnica or Nicole by April 15th:
