Our students represent a very diversified school. We have students from Israel, ex-Soviet Union countries, many of us never heard about, such as Georgia, Uzbekistan, Belorussia, in addition to the students from all over Asia, Africa, Central and South America. Our students come from low-income families. Many of them live in the shelter, far away from the school and take a long journey to come to school. Many of them are a single parent families or live in the foster family. Despite the conditions our students live in, they show good attendance and are eager to learn.
As a teacher who truly cares about her students, it is my desire to help provide them with at least a small portion of essential clothing to wear to school. Some of my single parent students lost their mothers due to cancer and their other caregiver cannot afford basic clothing. Another girl is going through chemotherapy now and I really want to help her. Many of my students come from very low-income families and travel by public transportation long distances from their homes that are located in crime-ridden areas to come to our school. They are hoping to have an opportunity to get the best education in a safe environment. My students explain to me that their parent(s) or a caregiver hardly earn enough money for rent and food and can't afford the needed clothing.
Every child deserves to have essentials for living.
It makes me very sad and concerned when many of my students come to school day after day in the same tattered clothing which they must wear the entire school year. With winter fast approaching, they do not have a warm jacket or sweater, but they are continuing to work hard to be successful academically and to be productive citizens for our country.
With your help, Dear Donor, I will be able to help at least some of my students get what are really bare essentials for most of us.
