Your generous purchase will give a child a complete summer and winter uniform to attend Sepheo School.
Until now, Sepheo School has been a place where children come as they are. No shoes, dirty clothes, it has not mattered. After six months of faithful attendance, however, we have seen that negative self-image continues to trouble our children. Although they are learning and improving in class, they can't shake the belief that they have nothing, are nothing, will do nothing significant. Compounding this, we unfortunately live in a community that highly values appearances. Several times a week our staff have to defend our children just for sitting or playing in public places, as people insult, beat and chase them. It has troubled us to watch this scenario repeat itself again and again, against children who are giving their all.
From January 2015, we are giving our children a boost. Every student enrolled in our school will receive a school uniform, free of charge. One pack provides a child with two school shirts, formal shorts, long trousers, a vest, tie, school shoes, sports shirt, sports shorts, canvas sports shoes, several pairs of socks, a hat and a belt. Each child will also receive a winter blanket, the traditional method of keeping warm.
