Would you like to make an impact to a kid’s life and be a hope for this education goals?

Primary education is a simple right, and provides the right to live and many freedoms we take for granted in our lives.

As Charlotte Giving Circle, we are supporting  a new school program in Ordu,  and we would like to seek your support to make this a positive change for the kids, families and the community they live in.

First Phase – Basic Needs

Boots4Kids: Many of you are familiar with our program and there could not be any other school that fits to the spirit of this program. Imagine the tough terrain of this village, situated in a high elevation where it snows 5 -6 months of the year. Kids are going to school against all odds, walking 2-3 miles everyday and catching the single bus that operates on a single road. These kids want to go to school, and wear old stitched or rubber shoes.  By your contributions, we will donate boots for 80 plus kids in the school as about 75% of the parents don’t have means to buy the right clothing for kids. We will make their feet “warm” and hearts even warmer!


City Field Trip: Majority – about 90% of the kids have never been outside the village boundaries, they have no context about the county/city and the history they are part of. We will organize a field trip – coinciding with the National Kids Holiday and pick the top achievers in their grades to participate in this school trip. Imagine your name been called by your teacher and the happy brightness in your eyes, and the pride this creates in your family. We will cover the full day expenses including the arrangement of logistics and lunch for the students and teachers who are going to be guiding the trip.

We have budgeted about $2500 to cover for the first phase and we would like to gather funds in the next 3 weeks for the timely delivery of the boots.  We recommend $35 per family/donor and we would be delighted if you go beyond these thresholds.  You may donate from the below donation link.
