Gretchen, safely back in Seattle, brought with her a tall pile of scholarship requests. So many needy kids that it is hard to figure out what to do. School fees have taken a big jump. Inflation is rampant; Gretchen reported that it is running as much as 15% a month. Families that formerly could afford school fees are struggling. We would like to help as many kids stay in school during the famine as we can so that a temporary condition does not cause lifelong difficulties.
