THE STORY:

KenYa help? The Taaluma Project is a non-profit organization started by Virginia Tech students two years ago who's goal is to provide funding for children to continue their education past primary school. Think about where each of us would be without any education past the 8th grade. While public schooling is a right for many of us, those in Kenya do not necessarily have access to this privilege due to lack of funds.

In April, I will be traveling to Gede, Kenya for two weeks with 12 other VT students to teach the students at Bambakofi school English, Life skills, and Entrepreneurship. These kids walk 6.5 miles to school and back every day and I will attempt to match their miles to see if I have what it takes to walk in their shoes. While I'm eager to meet the kids and start teaching, I want to start making an impact now by fundraising during my time in Switzerland.

Your donation could give a child the chance to further their education and create a better future for themselves. I challenge every one of you to walk or run 6 miles a day and #Trot4Taaluma!
