BENEFITING: FLYING KITES
I'm often asked, "Why are you so passionate about the children at Flying Kites?" It's simple, in East Africa, Flying Kites stands in the gap between Life and Death for these vulnerable children. The poverty and suffering I have seen in East Africa is heart wrenching, but the potential I have seen has been life changing. So this July, I will climb Mt. Kilimanjro for the second time to raise both awareness and support for these children in dire need. With your support, we have the power to turn disparity into hope and a future.
Flying Kites is an amazing organization that provides these neglected children access to high-quality education with the goal of alleviating suffering, increasing gender equality and promoting economic sustainability. However, for the first time in my support of this organization, we have a waiting list of children who need our help and support. As a result we have embarked on a major capital campaign to house, educate, and to feed more than 120 children in need. Please help me in breaking the cycle of poverty and providing a meaningful, long-term investment in the future of these children and our world.
