Phionah's Fellowship Air Travel
Organized by: Lee LaTour
Phionah Musumba has received the prestigious Cordes Fellowship and needs help paying for her air fare. We are trying to raise $2,500 for her round trip air fare from Nairobi, Kenya to Ixtapa, Mexico.
Phionah founded the Malkia Foundation, a NGO that empowers girls through education, in 2002. She recently received the prestigious Cordes Fellowship to be a delegate at the 2015 Opportunity Collaboration.
- My vision for Malkia Foundation is to build an all girls STEM school that enrolls girls from all over Kenya with quality high school education where bright, low income girls are given full scholarships as this education is not free in Kenya. It would be a first of its kind in Kenya.
The Cordes Fellowships provides exceptional social entrepreneurs and nonprofit leaders the opportunity to participate as Delegates in the Opportunity Collaboration.
- This Fellowship is very important because I will have five days to share my vision with would be sponsors, donors, funders, and/or partners. These are not one or two would be benefactors, but almost 300 of them. This is the only platform I have to realize my dream for my community. That's how important it is to me.
Phionah is an amazing women who has dedicated her life to empowering women through education. Please help her get to Ixtapa!
