BENEFITING: WE Charity
EVENT DATE: Feb 01, 2011
From the Free the Children website:
"Investing in the education of girls is key to breaking the cycle of poverty. In January 2011, Free The Children opened its first all-girls secondary school in Kenya, the Kisaruni Girls’ Secondary School. Kisaruni gives young women from different communities in the rural Maasai Mara region the chance to come together and continue their education beyond middle school, bridging both ethnic gaps between them and socioeconomic gaps around them. Forty girls make up the inaugural class. By continuing their education, these young women will become role models and visionary leaders in their communities, empowering them to create positive change within their society."
I hope you can join me in my efforts to raise money for these girls who are so excited to simply be given the opportunity to continue their education.
