I'm joining my good friend Laura Thompson and her husband Jason in supporting The Kilgoris Project. This is a personal ministry of Laura's family to help build schools in Kenya. I often think about how to help people half way around the world, but Laura and her husband regularly travel to Kenya as part of the mission of their church, putting their feet on the ground and helping to build these schools.
Donations to The Kilgoris Project go far. As noted by the organization:
"$2,500 funds an entire TKP classroom for the whole school year. That's teacher salary and benefits, enrichment programs, school equipment and supplies, and electronic books on Kindles. When you donate to the Back-to-School campaign you give these kids a rich environment to learn and grow. And the opportunity to extend their education for years to come.
Join our team, our movement and our love for Kenya. One book, teacher, lesson and child at a time."
I hope you will join me in raising funds for this worthy cause.
