THE STORY:

We are students fundraising money for Gitinga Primary School. Myself and seven other students from around the country are traveling to Kenya next summer to work with the students of Gitinga Primary School. Together, Caroline from California, Benjamin, Jack and Jimmy from Ohio, Collin and Jenna from Virginia, Ellie from Vermont, and Meghan from Middlebury College, are working to raise money for Gitinga Primary School. Gitinga Primary School is a small, isolated school located in the Kenyan market town of Naro Moru. The school is composed of three classrooms made of stone made possible by donations from three high school groups from America, another seven classrooms are very cramped and built with dirt floors and rough cut lumber walls. The locals of Gitinga Primary School live on crops grown on their small farms, and extra food is sold for purchasing life’s necessities. The little extra money villagers have is put towards the school fees for their children. While the government does contribute some money to the construction of new classrooms, it is not enough. With your help we hope to raise $8000 to build a new classroom for the Kenyan children of Gitinga Primary School. We have already secured labor from a skilled builder, and a number of local people. None of the money raised here will be used for travel or other living expenses. 100% of the money raised will be used to purchase building materials for the classroom. These children’s families make a huge commitment to education in an area where most people are still subsistence farming. A donation from you will change the world for these kids. As they say in Kenya, “Haba na haba, hujaza kibaba” or “Bit by bit, you fill the pot.”
