Devon discusses the Goma Student Fund
I already appealed on behalf of the Goma Student Fund, but Devon's personal description of her work with GSF gives a much better idea of why I'm a supporter.
The next step for GSF is to improve the quality of education in this area to bring it up to the standards of schools in Goma. To date, the investments of friends and family have allowed us to build five classrooms and enroll 250 students. Each class is full beyond capacity, with children sharing notebooks and pens and sitting four to a desk. Even then, more students the school cannot accommodate line up at the windows to watch lessons.
