EVENT DATE: Nov 17, 2013
My 23rd birthday is on November 17th and I am hoping to raise $2,300 by then for the East African Center for the Empowerment of Women and Children. This organization has helped to create a sustainable community of schools, teachers, students, health clinic workers, and families. It is giving children, families, and communities the opportunities that they deserve. The EAC is equipping the children in this community with the most powerful tool they will ever possess; an education.
While a student at Siena College, I really found my passion for helping, empowering, and supporting Women and children. The EAC has been a part of my life for over 3 years now and will continue to be there. This organization gives me the opportunity to serve women and children in a way that is bigger than I ever thought possible. For those who helped to donate to the fundraiser for Bikes a few years ago, Thank you again. They were so appreciated and helpful! Let's continue to make a difference!
We have just raised our goal of $10,000 to build and fully outfit a resource center for the students and office for teachers of Vutakaka Junior School in Takaungu, Kenya. THANK YOU!!!!
Our next and final goal for the year is to reach our goal of 10 student sponsors!! We already have 3 new sponsors! THANK YOU AGAIN!!
With the holidays around the corner, a student sponsorship makes a special gift for loved ones. What could be more special than sharing the gift of education?
