Our constantly developing literacy and practical skill programmes are not only helping these young people to learn how to play, read, write and create things, but to give them a code of Christian, spiritual and moral values that is frequently absent in their society.
As well as a Kindergarten, the number of pupils in our school is about 30 Teachers are not easy to find so we are having to train four new voluntary staff consisting of young men and women.
Bobby teaches the pupils aspects of their own Turkish language also Bulgarian which is vital for their future. You may be aware that we have taught various subjects to girls in the community, including hygiene, sewing and how to operate sewing machines. This course resulted in three of them finding employment in an area of over 90 per cent unemployment.
At the moment of writing this letter, Oggy is teaching the boys Carpentry. Carpentry is a skill that they would never obtain from their local school or community. It could become of vital significance for future employment and work at home.
Together with hand and cutting tools for manual work, the students are also instructed in the use of electrical instruments and computers.
We therefore continue to train teachers and provide text books and writing materials for their education. You have been a wonderful help since we formed our school and college.
Some of the most deprived and marginalised youth in Easter Europe, have been helped through your generosity; Bulgaria being at the economic bottom of the European Community.
You have been our ONLY SOURCE OF HELP IN THE PAST just as you are our only hope for the future. For this, we are forever grateful.
As Jesus, the One who gives more than is asked of him, taught people every day during his brief life, please help us to do the same with these poor, deprived children.
Be assured that your financial gift toward this project will be gratefully received and wisely used. We thank you.
God the Bright Companion be with you always.
