BENEFITING: KGWALE LE MOLLO US
EVENT DATE: Oct 29, 2016
As many of you know, I spent two years as a Peace Corps Volunteer in South Africa. While I was there, a couple of my friends started an organization to address one of the biggest problems that we saw - the lack of good educational options for talented kids living in rural areas. On October 29th I'm running a half marathon to help raise money for the Kgwale le Mollo (KLM) Foundation.
KLM strives to identify and sponsor talented young students from rural villages – students who have all the potential in the world and no educational opportunities to nurture and grow their ability. Public schools in South Africa’s rural villages are relics of the apartheid-era and victims of terrible public service delivery. South Africa is a country known for profound economic disparities – the bright lights of Johannesburg and Cape Town might as well be a world away. Young people from rural villages have no access to a real education, no prospects for a meaningful career, and no role models and support systems to help them to break out of the cycle of poverty. Please consider making a donation to help break the cycle of poverty in South Africa, one deserving student at a time. Thank you!
