Friends, you did it! Your donations are enabling three siblings in Mombasa, Kenya to go to school. I just returned from Mombasa last night and am so excited to tell you that I had the chance to visit with Sahara, Micael and Brian, along with their younger siblings. They are soooo excited to go to school!
The kids were sweet, shy, clean, and excited. They thanked me over and over again for "allowing" them to go to school and told me quietly how they hope to become "someone better" when they are educated. I could see a fire in their little eyes, an excitement. As I looked around the single room space they call home, I could see why they want an education. They want to get out of this slum and they want to have a better life than what they currently have. While their space was clean and orderly, their living situation is not what any child would dream of. And these kids know that the only way out of a slum is through education that leads to a good job.
Thank you for making this happen, friends. Thank you for caring enough that you'd donate to allow these kids to have a chance at a future.
