THE STORY:

Once upon a time there was a girl who loved to read and loved school.  She grew up and still loved learning.  One day she learned about the Masai people in Kenya.  She learned how few schools were available to the Masai.  She learned how outdated the few available schools were.  She learned she could make a difference in erradicating these problems. 

That was three years ago.  In that time I have helped with local events, joined the board of TKP and finally, last October, I made it to Kenya.  I played with many of the 1,000+ children who attend TKP schools.  I listened to the school teachers and administrators (all Kenyans from this community) who spoke with passion and dedication about the accomplishments already achieved and the dreams yet to be fulfilled.  I watched teachers using methods and tools that are common in the US but are ground-breaking in Kenya.  I saw first hand the difference TKP is already making.  I came home and wrote about it here: http://leftturns123.blogspot.com/2013/12/education-here-vs-there-vs-tkp.html

So what now?  I'm asking you to JOIN MY CREW as I aim to sponsor one TKP classroom for a whole year.  Just $2,500 funds an entire TKP classroom for the whole school year. That includes

  • teacher salary and benefits (including health insurance!);
  • enrichment programs (like our award winning cultural arts teams and leadership programs);
  • school equipment and supplies (it IS that time of year, right?); and
  • electronic books on Kindles (an environmentally sound and cost-effective way to offer an extensive library to this remote area).

Thank you for your friendship and partnership!  I appreciate you considering this campaign.  If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to ask me.  You can message me on Facebook or email me at LEFThompson@hotmail.com.
