A message from Home of the Open Heart
Hi! Thanks for taking a moment to read this and watch this very important and moving short film.
Belle is the oldest of all the children we care for at Home of the Open Heart. She has completed her basic level of education at high school and now desires to finish her schooling at the local international school.
This would be a very positive move for Belle as she desires to be in a more supportive environment and wants to improve her English skills, something that is invaluable when seeking employment. To ensure she can enroll for the new term Belle will need an English Second Language teacher to support her for one year. 
Would you consider about asking someone you might know who is a teacher or ESL trained to consider committing to working with Belle for one year from this August/September.
We also desperately need help with her monthly tuition fees – $100 per month for the next two years, to enable her to attend this school. 
Here is Belle’s story on Vimeo in her own words…. Please feel free to share her profoundly personal film with those who you feel might be inspired to help us give Belle the opportunity to have her dreams come true.
