THE STORY:

Im asking you to help me to raise $4000 for a Kenyan girl to get a high school education.

Through The Hilde Back Education Fund (HBEF) - a non-profit charity - together we can support the education of talented girl from a disadvantaged community in Kenya. The fund provides scholarships, material, medical, leadership training and psychosocial support to underprivileged children at the Secondary School level.

HBEF was founded by my friend and colleague, Chris Mburu and other successful Kenyan professionals from Githunguri area as a give-back gesture to their community.

Chris is the subject of an HBO documentary called A Small Act. It focuses on his story of being a poor child in Kenya who was able to go to school, Nairobi University and Harvard University and eventually work as a UN human rights lawyer, currently in Rwanda. He achieved all this thanks to small monthly donations from Hilde Back, a Holocaust survivor who was evacuated to Sweden as a child.

We can all replicate Hilde's small act of kindness. Please donate whatever you can to this cause.
