Everyone deserves an opportunity


What an incredible year it has been so far for PVBS and things are only getting started! Nothing excites us more than giving people, especially children anopportunity in life. As John D. Rockefeller once put it…“I believe in the dignity of labour whether with hand or head that the world owes no man a living but that it owes every man an opportunity to make a living.” Everything great done in life first started with an opportunity. Everyone deserves one, and at PVBS we believe in this!

We are so thankful for schools that havegiven us the opportunity to serve them, enabling us together to provide agreater opportunity for our not so fortunate friends. So far through partnering with 17 schools across Australia, this year (class of 2014) we've been able to raise and DONATE a total of $20,319.39 to our charity partners!! In total 1,308 (..yes over a thousand) children will now have access to education in Cambodia and also the money has funded the construction of 2 classrooms in Ghana! Wow! This is huge and we so humbled that we get to do this. This is what it’s all about! We are blessed to be a blessing and with LOVE we can impact many lives.

What excites us is that we are not simply “feeding” (even though that is fantastic) together we are providing the children with great foundation that could see them learn to “feed” themselves, grow to become responsible citizens who look after their families, and one child at a time a community is impacted. We can’t do it all but we play our part in empowering the next generation through education.

We are excited and looking forward toproviding many more children with an opportunity to access education, why not partner with us for class of 2015.
