So $5 Friday was a HIT yesterday and we wanted to say thanks! Vinaka!

Five of the girls we support weren’t at school because they couldn’t afford the $2 travel fare each day. Our Co-ordinator Urmila did a deal with the local bus company and we now get them term passes so they don’t have to worry.

They still have to walk up to an hour to get the bus, then from the bus home in the afternoon, in the heat and the tropical rain, but they’re at school and very happy to be there.

So with Term 2 about to start, we can set them up again thanks to your generosity…

If you’re not signed up to our newsletter you can see the email we sent out about $5 Friday here and you can sign up at the bottom left hand side of this page.

You would have also seen us promote $5 Friday, which happens each month, on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram, so get involved there too and stay connected to all the stories.

 

Warmly,

Jane for team ‘a Girl & her world’
