We are all aware of the current pressure on personal and family budgets. At times such as this it is even more important to be clear how donations are used and the impact they are having.
The Acts of Hope Child Sponsorship scheme does exactly this. We are of to a good start this year promoting the program through our networks and making presentations at schools, churches, rotaries, groups etc. This builds the “channel” with AoH donors and the children in a very real way. The Bengaluru children know real people are interested in helping them and the donors know they are being effective.
Peter Willetts presented an overview of life for our children in Bangalore to Maltman’s Green School this month. The staff believe having contact with the charity helps their girls improve their Geography, learn about different cultures and see how other children live. The girls asked some very astute and thought provoking questions in the Q&A sessions and we are very grateful for their support.
