Eliza finishes Primary School

ELIZA finishes primary school!!  this may not seem like such a wonderful announcement but for pastoralist girls it is a major milestone!  Eliza is one of the girls we sponsor for her boarding fees at Kipsing Primary. Most Samburu girls live with the constant fear of being taken from school for FGM and early marriage. To finish primary school is an enormous milestone!

As the Kenyan teachers are on strike, she has not yet received any invitations to attend secondary school. The principal of Kipsing Primary School is present on site at the school and is working to convince the parents of the girls who completed primary school to allow them to continue and finish High School. We also plan to continue support for Eliza into high school. It is donors like you that make this possible. Without you Eliza would have been forced to drop from school and marry early. THANK YOU.

READY for the NEW YEAR

The school year just ended in Kenya. Most of the children supported by Expanding Opportunities in school improved. Two completed their Class 8 so on to High School in 2015. One was in position 3 in her class! These children are so grateful that donors assist with their school fees. You may be assured that their love, gratitude and prayers go out to you.

Your assistance with their education, educates not only one child but generations to come, as each generation reaches the same or greater level of education.

HELP US GET READY FOR THE NEW SCHOOL YEAR! There are 24 children we are already working with and several on the waiting list.

This holiday Season, give a gift that isn’t just hung in the closet, or left on a shelf, give a gift that keeps on giving. Through GlobalGiving your donation is secure and right now an anonymous donor is matching every new monthly gift pledge.
