From Pencils of Promise's latest annual report. Delivering results! Since 2009, the cost of building a school has stayed constant - at US$25,000 (which schools about 100 students). On-going costs to sustain a child through school is US$25 a year.
Pencils of Promise have just announced that they will be raising the cost of their school build to US$35,000 - fair enough - bet you can't name one thing that hasn't experienced inflation over the last 5 years.
So I need help! Another US$1,800 to go before I complete building my third school!
Remember US$25 / SG$35 is what a lunch? A glass of wine? A cab right? That can educate a child for a year.
This is a simple blog to track my fundraising activities and to keep family, friends and supporters updated on my progress.
