THE STORY:

Two years ago, nine students who were on the same study abroad trip that I am traveled to the Bambakofi Academy, a school in Kenya. Their mission was to implement a program designed to help students make good decisions. Upon returning home they were all inspired to continue helping the children further their education. The goal of The Taaluma Project is to raise enough money each year to allow the graduating students of Bambakofi to continue on to the high school level without having to worry about financial obstacles. (http://www.taalumaproject.org).

How I will be getting involved:
On average students in Kenya walk 6.5 miles to and from school everyday. My goal is to walk/run 6 miles a day- to take a walk in their shoes. I will be participating in a half marathon in March as well. Please considering taking the pledge and donating today!

The Taaluma Project is a 501(c)3 certified non-profit organization accredited in the state of Virginia. This means that donations are tax deductible. All donations are deposited at the National Bank of Blacksburg.
