The Story Behind the Photo

What’s written on this blackboard alone won’t change her life, but her education can help pull her out of poverty and give her the opportunity for a future she deserves.

This is how the world changes: One school at a time, one class a time, one child at a time. The war in South Sudan had kept this girl from getting an education, but now the schools are open again and she is eager to learn.

This is her classroom. There are no computers or textbooks or even walls, just a blackboard leaning against a tree. The class is taking a break right now, but she remained to make sure she fully understood the lesson. What’s written on this blackboard alone won’t change her life, but her education can help pull her out of poverty and give her the opportunity for a future she deserves.

We are grateful that we were able to build a well at her school so that she doesn’t have to worry about anything other than what’s on that blackboard every day while she’s at school. And we’re grateful to you, our donors, from making this work possible.
