YOU DID IT!!!
Our year end goal is to give a WOW Christmas to at least 5000 children, and on #GivingTuesday alone you supported 62 children! This is amazing. This is 62 children who will receive a WOW Christmas- Providing them with the essential school supplies they need to participate in a classroom, and most importantly sharing with them the love of Jesus. Students like Grace…
Grace is 13 years old and lives in the community of Kabwe (Zambia, Africa).When Grace was a little girl her parents died and because of this she had no one to support her education. Her grandmother was left to care for her but was unable to afford the supplies Grace needed to participate in the classroom. This situation is far too common for children in sub-Saharan Africa. The United Nations recently put out a report saying that 10-year old girls will “shape our collective futures” (UNFDA). In places like Kabwe, there is desperate need of change, but if the future lies in the hands of a young girl like Grace and she cannot go to school how will this change happen? This is where WOW enters the story. WOW Christmas came to Kabwe and through the program Grace received the supplies she needed to go to school. Now she is eagerly learning alongside her peers. Each day she is in the classroom Grace is one step closer to a promising future for her and her community.
