Words from one of our 2010 high school graduates.

Just in from Kenya. The Kenya Certificate of Secondary Education exams are over. The last year students are home for the long wait while the exams are graded... One of the students that Expanding Opportunities has supported through school wrote the following in an email.

"You are a blessing sent straight from heaven. You have really encouraged and challenged you know some of the reasons that made me to keep on working hard;?????
1. I saw your efforts and I never wanted to let you down...
2. I wanted to work hard and also have a children organization (if a person can come all the way from U.S.A to help me and others, why cant I be of help to others)
3. I also wanted to fulfill all the promises I once made to you ... you really inspired me...
4. I also wanted to be a responsible man in the future who can man his family and other businesses"

Help us make it possible for others to complete high school.
