CAMP FOREST 2015 ONLNE

Learning around the fire

Camp Forest 2015 schedule is up on line. Take a look and see how exciting this ecological wilderness day and expedition camp is!   Among the new offerings this year are Earth Girl’s Camp – an entire week of Day Camp just for girls and Beaver Skills Week - a week of advanced wilderness skills. Returning for campers from anywhere in the world is the week long expedition down the Passagassawakeag River in Waldo County, Maine. This river offers slow moving lazy travel through field and forest, white water approaching the salt water of Belfast Bay.

Research has shown the many advantages of getting out into nature, Richard Louv wrote of the need for children to unplug and the healing nature of the outdoors for ADHD and other issues with plugged in kids. So help unplug children who might not otherwise be able to attend a summer camp. Your donation goes directly to pay a partial or full campership. THANKS as we look forward to a GREAT SUMMER

Eliza finishes Primary School

ELIZA finishes primary school!!  this may not seem like such a wonderful announcement but for pastoralist girls it is a major milestone!  Eliza is one of the girls we sponsor for her boarding fees at Kipsing Primary. Most Samburu girls live with the constant fear of being taken from school for FGM and early marriage. To finish primary school is an enormous milestone!

As the Kenyan teachers are on strike, she has not yet received any invitations to attend secondary school. The principal of Kipsing Primary School is present on site at the school and is working to convince the parents of the girls who completed primary school to allow them to continue and finish High School. We also plan to continue support for Eliza into high school. It is donors like you that make this possible. Without you Eliza would have been forced to drop from school and marry early. THANK YOU.

READY for the NEW YEAR

The school year just ended in Kenya. Most of the children supported by Expanding Opportunities in school improved. Two completed their Class 8 so on to High School in 2015. One was in position 3 in her class! These children are so grateful that donors assist with their school fees. You may be assured that their love, gratitude and prayers go out to you.

Your assistance with their education, educates not only one child but generations to come, as each generation reaches the same or greater level of education.

HELP US GET READY FOR THE NEW SCHOOL YEAR! There are 24 children we are already working with and several on the waiting list.
