School Supplies for Moldovan children

One of the blessings of child sponsorship is being able to assist with school supplies. One of the core values of Mission Without Borders is building self sufficiency.

"We want to make a sustainable difference to the lives of those we help. We encourage self-help, provide training, help people to make changes because this is more sustainable and reduces dependency."  Mission Without Borders US 

This includes education.  In many eastern European countries, students have to pay fees and purchase their own supplies for school.  But what do you do when you don't have the money to pay those fees or buy needed supplies?  Many times, this leads to high drop out rates and missed school.  Education is one key in stopping the cycle of poverty and creating a sustainable future.

Did you know?

There are many families waiting to be sponsored in Eastern Europe.  A partial sponsorship of $25 or a full sponsorship of $100 a month will bring Christ's love, hope, and a path toward self sufficiency for families in Eastern Europe.  

The B family in Ukraine have 4 children ages 2-8.  They are strong believers and attend church weekly.  Unfortunately, their house recently burned to the ground.  They are now living in a one room home with dirt floors and an outdoor toilet.  Both parents are unemployed and the father is often away seeking work.

The N family was abandoned by the father in 2010.  The wife now raises her three children on her own in a small house owned by her brother.  She is working as a temporary laborer on a farm but that just barely pays the rent each month.  They are not believers.

Maybe you could be the one to come alongside a struggling family during this difficult season of their life.  I can testify that there is no greater feeling than to have a family "graduate" from the program (on the path to self sufficiency).  You can obtain more information at the Mission Without Borders website or call 800-245-9191 (US office)
