Welcome to Little Stars - Happy New Year 2017

On the 29th May 2017, Little Stars children's charity will have been operating for ten years - a whole decade. All of our supporters can be proud of how they have improved the lives of so many people over those years. We are moving into our eleventh year with the same enthusiasm and determination with which we started.

There is now rampant inflation in Egypt with many staple food goods increasing 100% in price over the last year. The situation for the poorest element of the population is now dire. Limited funds mean that we are not able to cover all aspects of the work that we did a few years ago and we had to suspend work in the Training Centre. However, the Nursery School, Clinic and Dental Surgery are still fully operational and are in more demand than ever.

The nursery school in Luxor now has 48 children in regular attendance and has four members of staff instructing and caring for them.  The children are able to play in the garden when it is not too hot and the playground items were delivered ready for the Autumn Term 2016. The items were especially made so that they will withstand use by so many children.  

Funds are still extremely tight and although we are not yet able to restart our family sponsorship scheme we still provide food parcels for destitute families who are able to come to the Centre to collect them. Details and photos of all our projects are on the Projects page.

 
Your support is vital. We could not have done any of this without your help. Thank you
