SCHOOL's OUT!

A Kenya Classroom
A Kenya Classroom

School has closed in Kenya for 2013. Expanding Opportunities assisted 24 children in some way in 2013.  One of them completed high school, three of them completed Class 8 and will move into high school next year. Most of the 24 improved in every subject, and all were promoted to the next grade.  Educaiton is power opening options for the climb from poverty.  Research shows that children meet or exceed the education of their parents so the benefit of educating children reverberates for generations.

Though school is out and children's thoughts far from the classroom, Expanding Opportunities is planning for 2014.  We expect to be assisting more than 24 children in 2014 but we cannot do it without your help.  Education assistance ranges from the purchase of a needed textbook or exam fee at as little as $5.00 or paying for high school boarding fees for an orphan at $700 per year.

As you plan your holiday season, please consider gifting a child's education.
