A Path Out of Poverty

St. Vincent
St. Vincent's Scholarship Recipient, Mary

Thank you to our generous donors for funding this project that is sending five girls from Kibera to high school. Girls here so rarely are able to pursue education beyond primary school, so the chance to attend secondary school is a much cherished opportunity. 

One of the scholarship recipients, Mary, says of this opportunity: 

I am glad that being in school will assist me get to out of the poverty cycle that I have seen among other girls my age undergo here in Kibera.

St. Vincent's has selected these girls for support because they are not only among the most needy, but have shown their dedication to their education. The girls' thirst for knowledge and ongoing commitment to their studies continues to impress us and remind us why our work is so important.

Thank you for helping us to help them!
