Jordan Rue's Fundraiser:

Trot for Taaluma - Trip to Kenya

THE STORY:

When I was a junior in high school I took my first mission trip to Haiti.  After the impact of this trip on my life, I knew I wanted to continue service like this.  When I was accepted into my study abroad program I had no idea I would have such an opportunity again.  At the beginning of April I will be traveling to Gede, Kenya for two weeks.  Here I will be teaching courses at a local school, learning about the African culture, and isolating myself into a world I have not yet been exposed to. 

 A few years ago, a group of Virginia Tech students began the Taaluma Project from their trip to Africa. The Taaluma Project is focused on furthering education in Kenya.  Many students do not have the ability to attend secondary school after completing their 8 years of primary school.  We are determined to fund education for these kids, as well as support them through teaching. 

On average, a student in Kenya walks 6-7 miles a day to and from school. As a part of my fundraiser, I will be tracking where I walk, run, and explore. This will hopefully help grasp, if even just a little, a day in the life of a student in Kenya.

I have until April to fundraise for the Taaluma Project and my trip. Any donations would be appreciated. The money will go towards funding students wanting to reach secondary school in Kenya through scholarships. Below is the link to the project itself.
