Dear Family and Friends,
I want to let you know about an amazing opportunity I have to travel with a team of teachers to Kenya, Africa in the summer of 2019. I will be traveling with the nonprofit organization, Ingage Unlimited, to provide professional development training for teachers who often do not have the training needed to address their students’ complex needs.
While in Kenya, we will be working with two partners. Our first destination is Kibera, the largest urban slum in Africa. There we will be working with the teachers from the Bringing Miracles School. Next, we travel to the city of Naivasha to work with the teachers and students at Light of Hope Home, whose mission is to provide refuge, restoration, and redirection for the abandoned, abused, orphaned and neglected girls of Kenya. Educating and empowering girls is key to ending global poverty. In poorer nations, girls frequently receive little or no education, often marry at an early age and bear more children. Each year of education a girl receives, increases her future wages and often increases the age at which she will marry.
Over the next several months my INGAGE Unlimited team and I will begin to create professional development workshops to help meet the academic and social/emotional needs expressed by the Kenyan teachers. Once there, our team will be presenting lessons and ideas for teaching the students of this area.
Would you consider being a part of my support team by making a donation? Because this is a volunteer service trip facilitated by the non-profit organization INGAGE Unlimited, all contributions are 501(c)3 tax deductible donations, and they can be made online here. Your donation will assist with our travel and provide support for the families and students with whom we meet along the way.
I look forward to sharing our experiences with you. I’ll be posting on Facebook during my journey. Please feel free to email me (firstname.lastname@example.org) if you have any questions or comments.
Thank you so much for your time and consideration!
