Thanks to your efforts at Fuel Card Services the children of Parijaro are looking forward to the new term.
It was Cool Earth’s birthday back in June. Eight years old and proud as punch. And you were certainly generous with the presents – you helped to build a new school in Parijaro.
Parijaro is our most remote village partner, fifteen hours by boat and trek from the nearest town. Last year you helped equip a village clinic there and bought a coffee huller (it’s even better than it sounds). And thanks to you, we raised enough money in June to build a school.
Of course, raising the money is just the first step. Putting the building up in 100 degree heat and 100% humidity is another matter.
But in just five weeks the village has rallied round and turned your generosity into two lovely classrooms, a water tight store room, 62 chairs, 34 tables and a volleyball court.
So whilst families around the world might be dreading the start of the school year, for the children of Parijaro you’ve given them the best back-to-school present ever.
