THE STORY:

I have been given the exciting opportunity to volunteer this summer with a wonderful non-profit organization in Kenya called Shining Hope for Communities (SHOFCO). SHOFCO has developed an innovative, community-driven model to combat inter-generational cycles of poverty and gender inequality in Nairobi’s Kibera slum, the largest slum in Africa. I will be spending a month working at httpThe Kiberia School for Girls, the first tuition-free school for girls in Kiberia. By providing a superior education, daily nourishment, uniforms, and schools supplies all free of charge, SHOFCO is able to give the brightest and most at-risk girls the power of hope and education.

I have a personal goal of raising at least $1,000 directly for Shining Hope’s projects before I get there this summer. I need your help! Please consider helping me towards my personal goal* – every dollar goes incredibly far in Kibera.

All donations are 100% tax deductible. You can donate directly to Shining Hope through their website (http://www.hopetoshine.org/support/donate/) or by mailing a check made payable to “Shining Hope for Communities” to me or directly to the organization at the following address:

Shining Hope for Communities
14 Red Glen Rd.
Middletown, CT 06457

*Please make sure to put my name in the “memo” section of your check or online donation so they know to count it towards my personal goal!

Or you can donate here, through my crowdrise account!

Thank you so much. I appreciate any help you can give!
