Grace,Lilian & Mercy Needs Your Help

Mercy & Lilian
Mercy & Lilian

Dear Friend,
We have recently used  $800 to help Grace to undergo a heart treatment.  Thanks to your help, she underwent successful heart valve correction.  Grace is now recovering and feeling well.   Your contribution helped Grace get access to a lifesaving procedure she would not be able to afford otherwise.  Thank you!

The next level for Grace is now to join Egerton University where she has been called to do her Bachelor Education. Grace is among other girls who are struggling to Access higher Education in Kenya. Mercy and Lilian are in Moi University while Susan is to join them early next year. 

We urgently need to raise $ 1000 to support the Grace, Mercy and Lilian continue with their University Education or else they will be delayed for another one year as we try to raise for funds.

On October 19, is matching at 30% all online donations up to $1,000 per donor per project!  There is $100,000 available in matching funds on October 19.  Once these matching funds are used, no more matching funds will be applied.  In addition to the 30% match, GlobalGiving is offering a $1,000 bonus to the project that raises the most funds that day and a $1,000 bonus to the project that receives donations from the most individual donors!

Please donate to our project and support our girls’ access university education!  Your help is urgently needed and much appreciated!
