Kind-hearted supporters like you have just begun helping the Lalogi-Lakwana community tackle the root causes of poverty. 

Most families living here grow their own food, like rice and cassava. Harvests are often not enough to feed children. More than 75% of families go hungry at some point during the year. 

Schools are overcrowded, and classrooms can have up to 63 students sharing just a few desks and chairs. 

You can empower the community so they’re ultimately able to continue their development and thrive, on their own.

Yolanda hopes to be able to pay their school fees until they complete school; however, it is becoming more challenging. 

“Life is not easy because I have difficulty looking after the children especially when it comes to paying school fees. I have no money to take them to school,” says Yolanda.

Yolanda says there are a lot of children in the school and there are not enough desks, books and stationery for all the children. “Some end up sitting on the floor and writing (with books) on their laps,” Yolanda adds.

Yolanda wants to support her children to complete their education. “I need to have a good income through agriculture and also build a good house for me and the children.”
