THE TEN DOLLAR CLUB - Born Free Foundation Global Friends Program, February 2004

$1,300 was given to the Born Free Foundation Global Friends Program to fund the construction and delivery of 8 desks and 80 chairs to students at the Ngaga School in Uganda. Before Born Free’s support of the school, each class had a blackboard suspended from their “class tree.” When it rained, kids would be forced to scurry for shelter in a nearby church.

Now, a building has been constructed and the number of children attending the school has doubled. Before The $10 Club’s support of the school, each class used make-shift panels of wood atop bricks for benches and had no desks.

Now, desks and chairs will be available, enabling the children the opportunity to work in groups and provide a more positive learning environment. Uganda ranks in the bottom one-fifth of the nations of the world on the United Nations Human Development Index. One-third of Ugandan adults over age 15 are illiterate.

Welcome to our Global Friends page where you can link up with children who live far away! If you and your friends would like to exchange letters with children in Africa, then ask your teacher to take a look at our website and fill in the registration form.

Many of the African children live near projects supported by Born Free and see colobus monkeys, gorillas or even elephants close to their homes!

Why not join our group of Global Friends and you could exchange ways in which you are helping wildlife and tell the children all about the incredible creatures you find lurking in your school grounds or gardens!
