Wheels of Change

Our Wheels of Change campaign will raise $111,500 to fund mobile schools for Syrian and Iraqi refugee children in the Middle East as we launch into 2023. Here is what your gift will do:

  • Provide operational support for a mobile school serving Syrian refugees in Lebanon for one year = $32,000
  • Cover school supplies and instructors at the mobile school = $12,000
  • Purchase vocational equipment for a new sewing program designed for Syrian girls and delivered by the mobile school = $2,500
  • Establish a base-camp tent for the mobile school = $5,000
  • Fund a project that will allow displaced Iraqi students to access schooling at Good Shepherd Center in Jordan = $60,000

Total: $111,500

  • Mission delivery: the cost of vetting partnerships, fundraising and launching schools = $16,725

Grand Total:  $128,225
