Each year we fund 25 new students to attend primary school. This year we were able to increase that number to 35 due to efforts in Kenya and in Indianpolis to raise additional funds. Our Umoja Scholars work hard to do well on their KCPE exams. This year we had 60 students qualify for secondary school. Even with our increase to 35, we fall short of providing support for every student who comes up through our project. As we continue to support these children through all 4 years of secondary school, we will have 135 this year in secondary school.
The attached letter is from Georgina, she shares what the Umoja project has meant to her. From her letter, one can realize the scope of the Umoja project. We do more that support secondary tuition. GIP feeds, clothes, and provides psychosocial support for these orphaned and vulnerable children. Georgina says "little by litle my wonded hear was healing because I came to realize that I was not the only one who was going through that kind of life."
