Lockdown: Urgent Appeal for Food Vouchers for the Girls

The ongoing coronavirus has affected the lives of the girls at Assunta and their families. Many parents have lost their jobs, suffered pay reductions or had their working hours reduced and as a result struggle to afford monthly internet bills and put food on the table. So, in the autumn, we decided to offer every girl on the HVT programme (approximately 80 in all) a food voucher worth roughly £26 per child. The vouchers were finally distributed to the girls and their families on Saturday, December 12th at a Covid-19 regulated event. With the outlook grim we have decided to follow this up with another voucher in early January.

Thank You...

“Firstly, I like thank the HVT programme. They have helped my family by giving me uniforms, school shoes, meals on a daily basis during recess and revision books to study.The tuition has helped me improve my writing skills and I am better at my school work. I would also like to thank the teachers for teaching me how to be successful in school.”
