Here's the deal: when I lived in Kenya I stayed (for almost free) with this amazing family in Mombasa. 5 incredible kids, with an amazing mom, Leah, and dad with whom I am very close. Her son and daughter, applied and got into University of Nairobi, which is amazing. The trouble is that their father/her husband has lost his job so they are short the school fees. It's a little less than $1200. And it's a tight turn around (2.5 weeks). They have never ever asked me for anything so I know they are super desperate. I really want to help.
