Leslie Charles Campbell was a lifelong Lutheran and a children's advocate at Grace Lutheran Church. He worked tirelessly with the children to help better their lives. Mr. Campbell learned of the many obstacles facing African children through the Jubilee program at Grace. The Jubilee Program assists African families immigrating to the United States as refugees from war-torn countries as well as families seeking a better life.
Mr. Cambell supported the Lutheran World Relief, Doctors Without Borders and the Red Cross. When he died he specified that a van should be purchased to support the children's program at Grace Church. Mr. Campbell was also a caring family man. He never missed any activities, including PTA and recitals that involved not only his daughter but his many nieces and nephews.
Because of his dedication, Mr. Campbell's widow has supported Shina, Inc in its many endeavors to help disadvantaged children in Africa as well as the United States. It is with gratitude that Shina dedicates this education fund to the memory of Leslie Charles Campbell. The great hope of the Leslie Charles Cambell Educational Memorial fund is it will allow every child to have the opportunity to get an education.
Simple uniform can make a child miss his/her school. This happens when the parent either can't afford it or weighing just don't see the importance of the child going to school properly dressed. That is psychological to the child. Another cause is just writing materials and notebooks not being brought to school just because don't have them. These can cause for the child to even loose faith and hope..
When one sees the potential of a child wanting to go to school but can't because the parent and/or parents can't afford school fees...question would be "Why not me...", "Is God really there?" from that child.
