Send Kenyan Graduates to College

Oct 26, 2012

Universities and Vocational Schools

Students at Heroes of the Nation work very hard to pursue their dreams after high school graduation. Our donors have sent underprivileged young people to college. Thank YOU for making this possible. Lasting change truly comes about when students are given a chance to learn and contribute to their communities. 

We recently received a report from Kenya: 7 students are currently enrolled in a university program, most of them are already halfway through their studies. There are 11 more students currently enrolled in a vocational school.
We also have 7 high school graduates who have been accepted into their program of choice, but are now waiting funds in order to begin their college education. 
We hope that you can grasp the lasting impact that these students will make: 18 young people who came from the streets and are now studying for life-long careers. 
Below is a letter from Michael, one of our students at a university. In his letter, he was excited to share that he is making A's in school and is working hard. Below is an excerpt written for those making his journey in school possible:
"I know we have not had a chance to meet but i really remember you every time i pray. I sincerely don't have enough words to express the happiness and the gratitude that i have for [you] sponsoring me in my education." - Michael, HTN Graduate
