As we get further into our Spring Fundraiser, we wanted to share with you the impact your generosity has on the individuals we help. This month we are doubling your $20 donations, so it has double the impact on a portion of our world’s population that is most vulnerable…our children.

Your donor dollars are changing lives of Malawi children who attend our Namunda Primary School and their families with The Shoe That Grows and Luci Solar Lanterns. The Shoe That Grows is an antimicrobial sandal that adjusts up to five sizes for children’s’ feet as they grow and learn. They can walk to school and protect their feet from rock-strewn paths and soil-transmitted diseases.

Getting an education is extremely important in Malawi. Your donor dollars give children the solid foundation to receive a quality education and vocational training. As we continue building the Namunda Primary School, a fully functional school (Grades 1-8) in the Mulanje District of Malawi, Africa, children thrive by learning a different trade each year that they can use to provide for themselves and their families – like gardening, carpentry, sewing. The children love learning, and we love seeing their excitement in each new skill they learn.

Your $20 donation can also buy an MPOWERD Luci Solar Lantern to help children do their homework and families to work with safe, clean, light, as most families don’t have access to electricity. By bringing renewable sunshine into their homes, families don’t need to waste fuel or breathe in harmful fumes with the potentially harmful kerosene heaters that are often used.

We take the worry out of donation contemplation. At The Hamels Foundation, 100% of your donations directly support our educational programs and projects. When you donate today, you will see your donation making a difference and changing lives immediately. We are so excited to personally deliver these tools of growth to Malawi next month. Seeing how these agents of change transform these children and their families is an awe-inspiring sight – one that we want you to be a part of.

Already, over 40 lives will be changed by your donations this month. Please consider donating $20 this month for Shoes That Grow or an MPOWERD Luci Solar Lantern. You are personally helping to break the cycle of poverty and create a better world for children to live in, and we are thrilled to have you as part of the message for safe, healthy, and educated children. We thank you so much for your generous donations and know that your generous spirit is making a difference in this world.
