So that means we can finally take sponsors for the kids who are eligible for sponsorship!!!
PayPal is now up and working. If you are interested in signing up to sponsor a child. You can sign up through PayPal now. The direct link is on the right side of the page, it says "subscribe". Let us know if you have any more questions. Once you sign up you will be matched with one of the kids, and you will receive email updates letting you know how they are doing at home. If they are not yet at home, we will update you on our progress in meeting with the relatives to get them back home.
For those of you who are interested in donating to Obukuumi that can not afford a monthly sponsorship, we are in the process of setting up a "one time donation" option. You can still sign up to get monthly emails, and updates on the children in the program. The one time donations will go toward costs that the monthly sponsorships will not cover. Some of our children are returning to homes as far as 3 hours away. The one time donations will go toward transportation for Obukuumi Staff, and the families. It will also cover medical costs/emergencies for the children in the program.
We would also like to provide each of the children with a special Christmas gift in December, so if we raise enough money we would LOVE to make this happen, and provide you with pictures of the kids with their new toy :)
