Thank you most sincerely for your continued support of the work Yours Humanly does providing access to quality education and equitable resources to children desperately in need around the world, lighting their paths toward brighter futures through the power of education.

 

With your generous donations, we provided annual scholarships, uniforms and mid-day meals; computers; STEM and art supplies; and much more to children eager to learn and in need of an opportunity. And we provided relief to children and their families who suffered greatly at the hands of natural disasters.

 

Despite ongoing funding challenges, together we accomplished a great deal in 2021, positively impacting thousands of children. But there is still so much to do, and we can’t do it without you. Here’s how you can help.

 

Giving Tuesday is November 30. As a part of your year-end giving plans, please donate to Yours Humanly on Giving Tuesday or anytime between now and the close of 2021. When you choose Yours Humanly, you are transforming the life of a child in need forever, continuing your personal journey of giving back and being a part of something very special.

Our annual Tee Off for Education golf tournament was held on November 15 at the beautiful Rossmoor Golf Course in Walnut Creek, CA. After a full day of golf under cloudy but dry skies, players were treated to dinner and an awards ceremony. Thank you to our generous sponsors and golfers! No matter their scores at the end of 18 holes, through their participation, our golfers made a profound difference in the lives of children we serve—and that makes them winners on anybody’s scorecard! Throughout the event, we captured fantastic images, which you’ll find on our website and Facebook page.

In the summer of 2021, six Northern California high school students formed a nonprofit, iTutor Academy, whose mission is to advocate for and provide quality education that is accessible to all at an affordable price. It was inspiring to see the team run the online summer camp for children grades 3-5, teaching all the classes in math, English, and science; and facilitating all the art, debate, and public speaking clubs.

 

The girls did amazing work, helping campers learn new skills to get a head start on the upcoming school curriculum. 

 

iTutor was a success out the gate and the team raised $2,000 in the first session, which was donated in its entirety to Yours Humanly. Being faithful to their mission, the girls said they chose to donate to Yours Humanly because its mission aligns with their passion for providing children with opportunities for quality education.

 

Yours Humanly is grateful to these creative, innovative, and compassionate young people, and we wish them and iTutor all success for summer camps to come!
