Mandy Morrell's Fundraiser:

Gethsemane Garden Children's Center (GGCC) is a Christian school for orphans on Mfangano Island in Kenya. This poor island, where fishing is the only occupation is extremely poor and has been ravished by AIDS. GGCC has about 400 kids in the school and is run by donations. Your donation gives an orphan a home, clothing (even a school uniform), food, house parents, an education and love. I am a big fan of this organization because almost all of your donation goes straight to the kids (95%). Most charities take higher administrative costs.
At GGCC I support a great young man named Alphonce. He is 14 and lost both his parents by age 6. After that, he lived with his step mother who beat him and treated him like a slave, making him fish, farm, clean and care for her other children. Now that Alphonce is at GGCC he has a fresh new outlook on life and has even gone back to reconcile with his stepmother, who now treats him with respect. Alphonce is an amazing young man and studies hard because he hopes to be a lawyer one day. His story is just one of the 400 at GGCC. Will you help change these orphans' stories?
GGCC has only been around about 10 years and is in need of money to help build a high school for the older students. Will you help?
