Dear Friends and Family,
I am so happy to let you know that I have the opportunity to travel with Ingage Unlimited again this summer! Our team will be traveling to an orphanage as well as a school in Naivasha, Kenya.
I am overjoyed to be working with the Light of Hope Home whose mission is to provide refuge, restoration, and redirection for girls of Kenya. The Light of Hope School for girls provides education for girls as well as encouraging leadership. This is so important as in the world, 62 million girls in the world are not in school today because of poverty, lack of health care, forced marriage, or simply because they are girls. In Kenya, an estimated 3.5 million children are in the labor market, and school dropout cases are on the rise. The number one killer of girls under the age of 15 is early childbirth. Educating girls is a main focus to end poverty in our world.
Our team will be presenting lessons and ideas for teaching the students of this area. It is important to note that we partner with the staff to have a better understanding of the what the students need emotionally, socially, and academically.
Each team member has been asked to raise $4000 to cover the expenses for this mission opportunity. I am wondering if you would like to be a part of my support team and help me try to raise these funds? Because this is a volunteer service trip facilitated by the non-profit organization INGAGE Unlimited, all donations are tax deductible and can be made online here. Just select my name from the drop down menu for team members.
I look forward to sharing our experiences with you. Please feel free to email me, firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions or information about our experiences. Thank you!
With much appreciation and gratitude,
