Thank you so much to those who have donated to RIDE through our betterplace.org fundraising site, including those ‘anonymous’ donors who I am unable to thank personally. And thank you for the lovely comments about your time with RIDE. It means so much to us at RIDE to know that our work is supported around the globe, your comments have given us a real boost in what can be challenging times:
‘I came to visit RIDE about 7 years ago, had a homestay, and visiting some of your lending groups. I am happy to finally be able to make a donation to your program. Thank you for making it so easy. I wish you continued success with the important work you are doing.’ Anonymous, betterplace.org
We have spent the past few weeks chasing up all the children and speaking to parents to ensure that the children are all registered for the new year at school, and support those who are not. This brings up many challenges and sometimes resistance but in the end most parents are happy to send their children to school if given the right information and support.
