Good news from Congo!!!

It costs less than $75-$100 to send most children to school in Goma. When E was short tuition for 16 orphans, using some donated and personal funds, the tuition was covered with about $300. $300. It's nothing to us. A drop in the bucket. It's everything to sixteen children. The difference between an education and ignorance.

That's what's so appalling about the whole situation - how little money it actually takes to give people a chance to make their lives better. It doesn't take much at all.
