Holiday Greetings from Beyon…
Holiday Greetings from Beyond the Horizon

Thank you for being open minded, compassionate, and generous
Thank you for being you and being part of our journey to the world beyond the horizon

We have raised over $62K and implemented various projects to support Masai children's education in Kenya in 2014. There are certainly lots of old fashioned romantics around…

Happy holidays and have an exciting new year!

We made it, because of you! …
We made it, because of you!

After nearly one year of hard work, from fundraising, volunteer recruitment, to laying the bricks one piece at a time, and painting the entire building, we have completed the cafeteria at Oloosinon primary school in Kenya! 16 of us traveled there for the final painting job and opening celebration earlier this month. There were 1,640 people shown up at the opening, including 600 students, teachers, parents, villagers from the local masai communities, and local government officials. We fed them all! Check out our photo album at http://share.shutterfly.com/action/welcome?sid=0AaNmzRi1ZsWrCuA

Thank you so much for believing in and supporting our project! We couldn't do it without you.

In addition to the cafeteria, we have initiated a few ongoing projects:
-donated 150 copies of books to set up a school library
-set up "Flash Lab", a computer lab solution using recycled equipment, running on flash drive for low set up and maintenance cost
-announced SIS (stay in school) scholarship program that support 10 Masai girls to complete primary school. To be a sponsor for SIS, please go to https://www.crowdrise.com/SISSponsorship/fundraiser/meizhang. If you want to learn more about the life story of each girl we sponsor, please contact me by replying this email.

I am also very excited to inform you that we are forming "Beyond the Horizon", a not-for-profit organization for professionals in technology industry who are adventurous, and commit to go beyond the horizon to help the remote communities. Our next major project is a new secondary school in the same area of Oloosinon primary school.

To stay engaged to our projects, or interested in joining our future volunteer tours, please reply this email to subscribe our monthly newsletter, or like us on Facebook (https://www.facebook.com/pages/Come-with-me-to-Africa/531617160250013). We will launch Beyond the Horizon website soon.

It has been an incredible journey and I am honored to have your company. There are always places beyond the horizon waiting for us to explore together.

Cheers,
Mei
