Helping Street Children – Education Basics – Fun and Challenges – Improving Job Prospects – Gift Vouchers
Helping Street Children
These gifts benefit the talibes, young boys who live in poverty spending many hours each day on the streets, begging for alms. The gifts below help to improve their basic health care, preventing and treating their most common ailments.
The Diapalante Community Education Centre in Kaolack Senegal welcomes anyone who wants to learn. Youngsters fill the centre until evening when adults come to lean English (important for trade) or computer skills. Such opportunities to learn are needed but rare, in a country where 4 out of 10 children do not complete primary education (World Bank 2014).
Library in a Box £250
Mastering Maths £5
Internet for Learning £25
Sponsor a day £50
Fun and Challenges
These gifts offer the chance to develop wider interests. The activities are fun but also encourage creative thinking, planning, teamwork, and leadership.
These are useful skills for surviving the challenge of living in one of the world’s “least developed countries” (United Nations classification).
Improving Job Prospects
These gifts enable adults and children to develop skills which open doors and improve job prospects.
