March 2010 Families for Children Newsletter

You can read our latest e-newsletter at this link: (copy and paste it into your browser)

The beautiful photos taken in Dessie at our new school are rather small in the newsletter so I'm putting some here in larger form for you to see.  Thank you to our wonderful volunteer, professional photographer Ryan Gettler, for taking them!   Unlike many children in the U.S., these kids really appreciate a school to attend because many of them could not before we finished our Dessie's Dream project.  Others walked hours to an alternate school and now have one right in their own community. 

The old library with wooden shelving

The new library with metal shelving and filling up with books sent by many generous donors and packed in the suitcases of traveling parents and volunteers.  Our kingdom for a shipping container filled with textbooks for Dessie!
