At present our operating costs are about U.S. $7,000 per year. This covers the satelite dish payments, electricity, water, maintenance, cleaning supplies, computer supplies, library supplies, and the salary for 2 local people at below minimum wage … one as clinic assistant and cleaner and the other as library manager and cleaner. NO funds are taken out for management fees.
LIBRARY / COMPUTER CENTER:
Funding is always needed for the ongoing costs of personel, supplies, electricity and water. The library is also in need of books in Spanish for the junior reader and adult categories … novels and current literature is the best.
This year (2015) there are 28 scholars in the Scholarship Program at all levels of education and in several different schools.
The cost of a one year Scholarship averages about U.S. $600. A contributor can either choose to support one young woman throughout her schooling, or make a donation to the general Scholarship Fund.
CEMENT FLOOR PROGRAM:
Many of the young children of the village grow up in homes with dirt floors. Children who have nowhere to crawl or play except on the dirt floors have higher incidences of skin parasites and general poor health. For a donation of U.S.$ 150.00, you can have a cement floor of 12 square meters installed in either the bedroom area or the kitchen/patio area of the home.
100% of donated funds go directly to the program of your choice.
Those who donate will receive monthly statements showing the expenditure of funds.
All donations, from Canada and the United States, will receive a Registered Income Tax Receipt for your country if sent to:
c/o Kimberly Haley-Coleman,
6500 East Mockingbird Lane, Suite 104
Please indicate for which program you are donating the funding.
