The kids are growing up in Haiti

You may remember Laury (left) who we met in 2012, one of the tent camp kids attending the Children of Haiti Project School with no previous education. The Ministry of Education in Haiti recently reinstated standardised testing, evaluating all 4th graders in Haiti to monitor them.
Laury scored 100 in French grammar / reading / writing comprehension, 100 in maths and 90 in Creole grammar / reading / comprehension. Congratulations to our supercalifragilistic Laury!

Back to school in Nepal
Durga Aran (left) of First Steps Himalaya, is in Nepal delivering exercise books and stationery to children in 30 schools.

Their earthbag constructed Early Childhood Education training centre in Sangachok (one of the only buildings still standing in the area) is coming to good use for temporary classrooms. 
And support is coming from all directions to help them in their mission to rebuild schools using this earthbag construction technique. 

Handwritten letters from the kids in Kenya

One of the great handwritten letters from the students we sponsor in Kenya. Faith is in her second year of Secondary School.

UNICEF in Vanuatu
"Three months after Category 5 Tropical Cyclone Pam hit Vanuatu with devastating force, Vila North School is a study in contrasts. Children released for break scream with delight as they scamper from tents set up as temporary classrooms, past the destroyed parts of their school. Builders work around them, replacing the roofing on classrooms and rebuilding destroyed facilities as teachers plan their lessons from a temporary office inside a repurposed shipping container. Students and teachers can see the progress around them – but much remains to be done."

WOW tickets are out
on Monday

This is a wonderful opportunity we have received as a charity of choice of WOW®. We have 200 tickets to sell to the World of WearableArt Awards 2015 Preview Show on Wednesday 23 September.

50% of the ticket sale goes to Purple Cake Day projects (see above) and will be an enormous benefit to the children we support. 

We need all the help we can get to sell these tickets, so please visit our website when they come out on Monday and share the link far and wide!
We have an A4 poster you could download for noticeboards. And if you are able to add it to your work/school or community group newsletter, that would be fabulous. There is some sample text on our site. Thank you!
