GoalThe goal of this project is to provide an education program for the children staying at Deborah’s House so they don’t fall behind in their education.
SummaryThis project seeks to raise $9,019 annually in order to pay for an online tutor, books, school supplies and technology for the children being sheltered at Deborah’s House so that they keep up with their studies.
DescriptionDeborah’s House in Tijuana is a refuge for women and children who are victims of domestic violence. In this safe environment, the women and children have an opportunity to heal physically, emotionally and spiritually. Currently Deborah’s House doesn’t have the staff or resources to help the children who aren’t receiving any schooling while staying at the house. They cannot be enrolled in public school as this is a security risk. The project will support a comprehensive structured education program for the children to continue their education and not fall behind academically. The program will have a tutor from Didaque, a local, private Baptist school located in Tijuana. This tutor will provide online schooling for 4 hours per day, 5 days a week. This project also includes books and school supplies, plus internet access and computers. The end result is that these children will be able to continue and advance their studies so that they can join the age-appropriate grade when they move out of Deborah’s House. On average, the mothers and their children stay at Deborah’s House 3 – 6 months. It is expected that this project will help 10 – 15 children per year. The project total cost is $27,058 over 3 years, or $9,019 per year.
Suggested GiftsA gift of $170 will provide tutoring services for one child at Deborah’s House. A gift of $1,000 will provide for at least 6 children per year to be enrolled in online classes through Didaque School. A generous gift of $6,000 will provide a year’s worth of tutoring services for 15 children at Deborah’s House.
Prayer RequestsPray that the women of Deborah’s House will have peace of mind that their children are safe and continuing their education. Pray that the staff of Deborah’s House will benefit from this project which will give them time to focus on helping the women while their children are in classes. Pray that this program will allow the children to continue to learn while feeling safe and protected.
