For cooking the family uses firewood and receives their water from the river nearby. While for lighting they use kerosene lamps. Geoffrey attends school and will begin class 3 in the school year 2022. Academically, he enjoys his mathematics, English and science courses and hopes of becoming a doctor one day. Geoffrey really enjoys his days at school, but doesn’t enjoy going back home once the day is done. He is ready to stay in the orphanage of Island of Hope. Geoffrey’s adoption costs 5.600 CZK/ 220 EUR per school term (16.800 CZK/ 660 EUR per year). Will you provide for Geoffrey’s education cost so he can continue to learn and grow?
