As I stated in my introduction The Spirit of the Peaks is a non-profit making organization. A percentage of the fees for every course that is taken by students is used to help a little girl called Zula in Ethiopia, to be educated and also to help her family and community.
Ethiopia is one of the poorest countries in the world, which is prone to famine and food shortages.
Zula is 10 years old (dob. 25.9.06). She lives with her parents and many brothers and sisters in a one room shack in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia . She has the opportunity to attend a local school and sponsorship will help her continue to receive an education.
Without a sponsor Zula's future remains uncertain, facing life without basics like clean water and nutritious food. With sponsorship like ours Zula and others like her will grow up healthy and happy, with a real chance to move out of poverty.
I have sent extra money (with your help) to provide for a Christmas party for Zula and her friends.
Here is a message to you from Zula.
"Greetings to you.
I am very happy to be able to write to once more. I trust that you are all in good health. Thanks to God my family and are fine.
It was lovely to receive the stickers you have sent me and I am very grateful for that. It was very kind of you. Thank you so much.
My family and I are very appreciative of your generosity. Your sponsorship has made my life meaningful. I am glad to have a family in England . God bless you.
Yours Degu, Zula "
