Microprojects pave the way for more personal scholarship donations

In an effort to raise funds for Africa SOMA's 2013 Scholarship winners, we have begun creating individualized microprojects, under the umbrella of this Global Giving project, in order to highlight each individual student to potential donors. All the money raised directly through this project will be divided equally among our students however we wanted to give potential donors the chance to get to know our students on a more personal and individualized level. I encourage you to check out these related microprojects.

We have already had enormous success with fundriasing for Monica, one of our scholarship students, as she works towards her dream of becoming a doctor. Monica would like us to say "Thank you" to all of those donors that contributed to the great fundraising success of her microproject. We have great confidence in Monica and thank all our donors for helping provide the finances necessary for her to pursue this goal.

Currently Africa SOMA's has two summer interns, Brooke and Helen, working on the ground in the Elangata Wuas community. As volunteer teachers they have become very aware of the rewards and challenges the community's hardowrking students engage with on a daily basis. Our interns have been interviewing the 2013 scholarship winners about the impact Africa SOMA's scholarship has made on their lives, how their adjusting to high school as well as thier future plans and goals. Damaris, one of 2013's two female scholarship winners was recentlly interviewed regarding the impact her schoarship has had on her life. 

Again we would like to thank our donors for their support. Education has long been understood to be one of the most successful methods for increasing the social mobility, health, climate change resilience and empowerment of not only the youth that are educated but their communities who benefit from the ripple effect of education.

Thank you for choosing to support Africa SOMA in our work. We could not do it without you.
