The rains are coming.
The waters will rise.
Right now their school has a teacher, a blackboard, books, and students. They are learning and growing and feeling that perhaps they can achieve their dreams after all.
But the rains are coming.
Their hut, though cool in the summer heat, will likely not last.
When it floods, the school will likely be destroyed.
Where students should be sitting, water will stand.
Where children should be growing, water will stagnate.
The rains will steal away months of education. The construction will steal away more. In communities where everyone works in fields harvesting all day, there is little time to dedicate to re-building a school.
When the walls fall, so will their hopes.
Be a hand supporting the wall.
Put your umbrella over their sweet heads, so they can fill them up with knowledge.
Give them a roof so their dreams can reach the sky. Sponsor building a school today.
Gather your friends, persuade your classrooms and small groups, and convince your families.
Don’t let the rains wash away their hope for a future. Invest today in sustainable, long lasting school buildings.
