In recent months Zina has been struggling with decimal places in maths. She is rounding off decimal numbers and Valentina stops and explains to her, “Here, 2.43 is rounded to 2.4 because the last digit is less than 5…”
Valentina said, “When it came to decimal numbers, Zina was struggling to understand. So I took an apple, cut it into 2,4, and 6 and then told her the apple is the whole and the pieces are parts of it, so that she can visualise the problem more easily.”
Zina hasn’t made her mind up on what she wants to be when she grows up – but she is full of new desires and skills. “I like finding out new things so that when someone asks me, I can help them,” she says. “Zina’s progress is noticeable”, Christina, a teacher at her school, told us.“Now, she’s always prepared for lessons and she always has the right school supplies with her.”
MWB's educational support is inseparable from our spiritual support as we seek to reveal God as our Provider and heavenly Father to the children we work with. We have seen that education along with a deepening knowledge of God and his Word can create real and lasting change in a child's life.
This year, Mission Without Borders plans to distribute thousands of backpacks full of school supplies to children in Eastern Europe as part of our Back to School programme. We can only do this through your help. Your gift can open the door to new opportunities, hopes and dreams for children like Tudor.
A kind gift of £28 could provide a backpack and school materials for a child like Zina to ensure they don't drop out of school. A gift of £50 ccould cover some of the teaching resources and learning materials used by MWB Coordinators like Valentina with the children. And a very special gift of £75 could cover some of the teaching resources and learning materials used by MWB Coordinators like Valentina with the children.
