Meet GRACE

Grace, so shy, hiding behind her mom.
Grace, so shy, hiding behind her mom.

Little Grace hides behind her mother’s chair as we hear her story.  Painfully shy, the little girl, though 7 years old, has not started her education.  Her mother is afraid that her daughter will never attend school and that she will be punished for “keeping” her child from school though the reason is lack of funds.   She herself is not well educated and does not have regular employment.  When she does find work it is difficult as there is nowhere to leave her children.  Caught in this dilemma, the mother approached us to help enroll her daughter in Nursery school.   As the public school is quite far and Grace so painfully shy, she needs to attend a small private nursery school close to her home so her mother can walk her to school.  The contribution the mother is asking for the nursery school, uniforms and other fees is $85.00 USDollars, 7,100/= Kenya Shillings, or 60Euros.  School begins in January.  This is one of the ways your donation is used.
