June 28,2011: Star of hope paid out last week huge amount of special gift money to many sponsored kids from Dano, Rigaud, Boyer, Jeanton, Marigot, Hesse, liancourt , B.Negresse and Carrefour orphanage. Summer break is good time to give money gift to the kids, it will be very useful to have a wonderful 2months summer break. Most kids will invest their money in buying animals like pig, goat, cow and chicken to raise to make more money in the future for emergency needs in the family. Some kids will spend their money in food, drinks, candy and clothing and shoe, another group will spend the money in entertainment to have fun summer time; football, beaches, summer camp, visiting friends and relatives, bathing in the river, fishing, program club, games, etc… the last group will give the money to the parents for daily need like food, medicines, and farming.
So you can imagine how happy are children who received special gift money from their sponsors in the last day in school to go in summer break. To make sure that everyone get their money, star of hope assist to all special gift money distribution in each school and we take picture of each individual kids with one of the parents together.
