Education in the midst of Poverty

Many people in different countries do not have the
assets that we have in America. I recently got
some pictures of a few little children and a little
brief on their backgrounds. Many of their families
make about one US dollar a day! One little boy's
widowed mother stuggles to provide for her six
children earning 36 cents a day! Many parents
in different countries cannot afford to pay for
their children's education. Through Compassion
and other orginizations, families are provided
with money so that their children nourishing food,
and the education they need. In some communities,
one out of every four children will never attend
school! That is a very shocking statistic! To find out

God bless you!
