IMAGINE – JustWorld International

“Imagine.” Let’s take a minute to think about this powerful word. It suggests ideas and dreams for the future. It brings hope that what can be imagined, can be achieved. I’m happy to say that with our donors’ help, we have achieved what was once just an idea, hope, and dream for thousands of children.

Then: Phymean Noun with the kids in the garbage dump before attending the JustWorld/PIO school.

Allow me to introduce you to some of the children at the JustWorld/People’s Improvement Organization (PIO) school at Stung Mean Chey, Phnom Penh, Cambodia. Han, Chhun, Vor, and Keo shared with me their dreams to someday become teachers, photographers, and nurses. Their reality, however, was much different. They were barefoot, sick, and hungry – scavenging a garbage dump for food and any materials that could be sold, earning a few pennies a day and having no means to a better life.

As you imagine how life was for these children, realize that in less than a decade, with the help from JustWorld supporters like you, we have been able to provide free education, free meals, and free medical care to more than 3,000 children at JustWorld projects in Honduras, Cambodia, Guatemala, and Brazil. We’ve given these children the ability to imagine a better life, filled with hope and sucess for the future.

Today: Students at the JustWorld/PIO school at Stung Mean Chey

Can you imagine what more we can do together?

We need your support. Please contribute to the JustWorld International Annual Fund. Participation at any level is important and your contribution will help ensure that all of our programs continue to offer our kids – this year and every year – the opportunity to fulfill their dreams with the tools and support JustWorld has given them.

Sincerely,

Jessica Newman
