Some of the most memorable images from childhood are opening presents during the holidays and finding the toy, shoes or book you dreamed of. Extend that surprise to a needy child in the name of someone you care about.
(Please be patient as the secure donation web page loads.)
In Anse la Raye, St. Lucia, most pre-school children don't dream of these things because the holidays rarely bring a gift for them - neither do
their birthdays or other special times of the year.
Many children arrive at Kids' Step Preschool each day without breakfast or shoes. Their parents are unemployed and living on the margins. Kids' Step gives them security, education, a meal, and often, a pair of shoes or a shirt to wear home.
Children living in our partner community of Anse la Raye expect to receive very little in the form of material things. Yet, when their parents and caregivers are able to provide these "extras" for them, they experience the same joy that priviledged children know worldwide.
You can bring that joy to a child in Anse la Raye, St. Lucia this holiday season. Send a gift in the name of someone you'd like to honor this way...a teacher, employer, friend, relative or neighbor. Know that your tax-deductible contribution is magnified several-fold in East Caribbean Dollars, AND in the currency of LOVE.
"We are grateful for every contribution for our children.
Self-esteem is learned by knowing that someone cares.
Thank you for caring for our children."
~ Wilcina Gabriel, Director, Kids' Step Preschool, Anse la Raye
