The Holidays are fast approaching. A long awaited Festive Season for many individuals. It is often associated with happiness, celebrations, gift-giving, parties and, most importantly, the gathering of families and friends.
A week ago, we launched our 2014 Holiday Drive to give the gift of water to our young scholars. We aimed to raise $600 dollars, approximately 47,400 Kenya Shillings, to put towards the purchase of a second water tank at Vision School in Kisumu Kenya. These tanks allow for easier harvesting of rain water. They also reduce water borne diseases by serving as treatment units.
Our growing community and donors supported us yet again! We surpassed our goal in five days! To have included the gift of clean water speaks not only to our donors’ generosity, but also to their sense of social responsibility.
The importance of water cannot be overstated, nor can the impact we can have on these children’s lives. In having supported our Holiday Drive, our donors have extended their family’s reach internationally during this festive season. They’ve contributed to boosting our children’s health and confidence.
Please note, we will soon launch our New Year’s campaign to raise funds for school fees for three of our new high school students. Check in for details!
