Program funds school in Ghana for children who lost parents to AIDS.
UUs across North America have donated more than $8,500 to the project, making it possible for these children to begin school, said Jim Nelson, UU-UNO executive director. The agency’s goal is to support 1,200 students eventually. A contribution of US$60 or Can$80 will pay for school fees and health insurance for one child for one year.
Nelson encourages congregations to organize a UN Sunday to raise funds for the Every Child Is Our Child project.
