"Finding tuition is an uphill task." Mercy Thuo, administrator of the Good Samaritan Home in Nairobi, Kenya, told us this July that ten teens are waiting to go to high school. With 120 high school students at the Good Samaritan Home, and tuition at $1060 per child per year, the annual bill is $126,000 (US $) per year. Now we have raised over $2000 in this fund drive, only 8 children wait for you to donate so they can go to school.
