THE STORY:

It's going to be my golden birthday! On May 27th I will turn 27 and I am challenging myself to raise 2700 dollars to give books to children who need them desperately.

"Learning to read is critical to a child’s success – both in school and in life. Literacy is one of the best predictors of a child’s future success. But a child without access to books won’t have the chance to become an engaged and capable reader."

"This is the reality for children who are growing up in poverty; books are scarce. In some of the lowest-income neighborhoods there is only one book available for every 300 children."

This year, I want to dedicate my birthday to giving to the community of Nkoile, Kenya by helping to build a library and buy textbooks for the amazing 400 students at Nkoile Primary School (ECE-8).

Sylvia's Students Foundation believes that a great education at a primary level, provides the beginnings of a successful future. Without proper curriculum books, text books and reading books these students are at a major disadvantage.

Please help me to have the most amazing 27th birthday by helping these students to have something as simple and as powerful as a good book and a great education.

Asante sana (thank you very much)!
<3 Christine
