To all the loyal subscribers to Global ADE: We are excited for you to join us as we continue the great work of Global ADE now under the Spitler School Foundation.

The Covid-19 pandemic has reshaped our lives in the past two months, and that has certainly been the case for our staff and students at Spitler School and Stephen Mazujian Middle School. Not only are our students being deprived of their regular learning opportunities, but many of their families have also been unable to work. In the small villages surrounding our schools, even without this pandemic, most families barely earn enough money to feed their families. So, as you can imagine, this pandemic is much more than just an inconvenience to these families.

But, with the help of our partner, Kids Play International, we purchased $3,000 of food to help over 75 families in the villages surrounding our schools. Each family received a 50-pound bag of rice, a bottle of soy sauce, a bottle of fish sauce, 10 eggs, sugar, salt, mash and two bars of soap.

Many villagers told our staff: “Thank you for being so thoughtful and helping us through this very difficult time.”

Although our regular funding is focused on education, we believe in the importance of helping our students and their families where we can during this unprecedented event.

We hope to be sharing news of our schools reopening in the very near future.

Sending you all Healthy Wishes.
