The Story

Greetings! After visiting Chennai, India, last week, I was so happy to visit the Assisi School, a well-run primary/secondary school of 2,000 students, with an amazing Principal who has dedicated his life to the students.  Because our Foundation supports orphaned children in this school, I decided to make this visit to see how it was progressing.
All the teachers arrived in colorful saris and greeted us as they signed in for work.  The children were full of life, and the place was in very good condition.  The greatest need, the Principal informed me, was that they needed to have a water filtering system installed in the school for the children.  I asked what the amount would be to install it and he shared it would cost $6,000 USD or close to $400,000 Rupees.   
We know this amount can be raised with the help of each person sharing a little.  When I was there the temperature was nearing 100 degrees Farenheit, so water is a serious necessity. Take a minute to think of how you could help us raise this amount and pass it along to your friends and family as well.  If 100 people each gave $60, we would reach our amount,  Can you be one of the 100?  Any amount is greatly appreciated!

There all kinds of causes out there in our world, and one of the biggest causes is clean water.  When I visited Chennai, India, this past March 2014, I was surprised to learn that water has to be bought for the school because there is no filtration system in a school that cares for 2,000 students.  There must be a better way to provide clean water to these students through filtration, so I ask about it.  The principal of the school shares that $6,000 USD will provide a safe drinking water filtration system.

I think we can do this together if we put what we have in common.  Can you add to our fund in any amount?  Water is a necessity of life and schools have so many financial constraints on them that they shouldn't have to pay for that, too.  Join us for a better life for these 2,000 students.
