Have you ever thought about helping a student in Africa?
The people of the Samburu tribe in northern Kenya are nomadic pastoralists and their way of life is thousands of years old. This is one of the most marginalized and poorest areas in Africa, lacking the most basic of amenities – clean water, roads, transport, electricity, telephones and pre-natal health care.
Every year there are hundreds of motivated and committed students there who have, against all odds, succeeded at grade school and are offered places at the top high schools in Kenya. But high school in Kenya is not free and they are never able to go because their parents cannot afford to pay their fees, uniforms or even the bus fare to get there.
The kind and generous souls at the Thorn Tree Project have made a commitment to send 30 of these students this year to high school. Would you like to help? They are looking for 30 people who would like to change the destiny of one of these children by sponsoring one of them throughout the four years of high school which costs just $1,250 each year. Could you be one of them? If so you can email Jane Newman, the founder of the Thorn Tree Project at firstname.lastname@example.org and you can read more on the Thorn Tree Project website: www.thorntreeproject.org.
Thank you so much!
