Morgan Brown's Fundraiser:

Keeping Brian in School

Last semester, I went to Kenya to study and intern abroad. It was a different world than the one I know in New York, but I quickly fell in love with it, particularly with my internship, where I worked with HIV+ women in a slum outside Nairobi. There, I was introduced to Leah and her 15 year old son, Brian. He has finished the schooling the government provides, and his single mom can't afford to send him to high school. He is just a normal boy, who loves music (particularly reggae) and video games, and who is slightly intimidated by girls. He wants to be an architect or an engineer. He takes care of his younger sister while his mother tries to work to make ends meet. He faces great amounts of stigma for being the son of a woman with HIV, though he does not have it, but he as much as any child deserves to be just that--a child, with hopes and dreams. We have enrolled him in a boarding school outside the city, but we cannot pay all his school fees, which is why I am asking for YOUR help. It does not take much to help this boy, but that little bit will change his life, and the lives of his mother and sister, forever.
