Testimony of one of the children

I was very young when I started being on the back to school project, I was in grade 6 when I joined now I am in grade 12 it has been there for me 9 years of my life. They helped me in everything they could.

I am thankful for the wonderful work that they are doing and I pray to God to continue blessing them abundantly. I am hoping and believe that one day I will be one of the donors and help kids that cannot afford to pay fees at school. The back to school project has made a huge change in my life. Before I use to have only one school shirt and my school shoes were broken and had to put a plastic bag inside so I don’t wet my socks.

Back to School project has really been helpful to me in a special way. Thank you once again for touching many souls and changing our lives for the better. God bless.

 Yours faithfully

Dear Shiloh

Greetings to you all.

I would like to thank you very much for the helping hand that you are giving to us.  Thank you so much for the uniform and stationery that I received. You are making my dream of education come true.

Keep up the good work and helping the children in need.

Thank You



Thank you for being so generous thoughtful and so faithful to the living God. I just want to thank most of all for just being you, the chosen one to mold my future. One day something good will come out of me because of you. It seems so trivial to say my cup overflows because of you, so thank you for the help.

Thank you is such an easy word to say yet often spoken in so much delay. Thank isn’t even enough for your goodness to repay but let me say.

To whom it may concern,

Thank you very much for the opportunity you presented me in allowing me to complete my community service with you. It was an enriching experience and my eyes were really opened to the poor and needy out there who get blindsided by so many, it was an emotionally touching experience and I feel as though you are doing really wonderful work by helping to uplift their lives and improve their living standards. The love and passion that you put into your work is truly admirable.  

I really look forward to doing next year’s project with your organization if you provide me with another opportunity and privilege of being able to work with you again. 

 Once again, many thanks and continue with the life changing work that you do on a daily basis, it truly is inspirational. 

 Kind regards,

Ethan Africa
