The Gift of Love
If you’re looking for gifts for those who are hard to shop for or perhaps already have all they
need, consider giving a donation to Watoto Read in their honor. This year, we invite you to
donate toward a bench that children in the schools will use. Currently, many classes are taught
in unfurnished rooms, with children sitting on thin mats on the dirt floor. Without benches or
desks, not only are the children uncomfortable, but they don’t have a good writing surface,
making it harder to learn.
- Each bench consists of a desk and connected seat, and seats up to 5 children
- Benches will be built locally, by refugees in the camps
- The cost for each bench is $103; you can fund an entire bench or provide a share (one
seat) on the bench for $20.
Purchase a Full Bench – $103
Purchase Shares of a Bench – $20/ea
If giving in honor of someone:
Print a card for your friends or family telling them about the gift in their honor (This is a foldable card you can print at home).
