2022 has been a year of new challenges, yet we continue to move forward thanks to your generosity, compassion, and kindness.
And you all have been SO generous!
Last month we shared with you that we were halfway to our hope of 22 new sponsors in 2022. School fees must be paid by the end of October, and Kilimanjaro Kidz Education Foundation board members are feeling the crunch to achieve this milestone that we have set for helping the families of our porters. You may remember that we are a goal-oriented group – summit Mt. Kilimanjaro ✔, start a non-profit ✔, buy a company ✔, cross the continental divide on foot ✔ – you see where we’re going with this. 😉
Stephanie was having dinner with family recently when her husband shared what she’s been doing with KKEF, who we’re helping, and how. Her mother-in-law asked some wonderful questions, and Stephanie was so happy to tell her the story of KKEF. As a generous, goal-oriented woman herself, she said “Sign me up” within the next few days!
Then Stephanie went to kickboxing class and shared how happy she was that more of her family wanted to get involved in our cause, and one of her friends in the class said, “Sign me up!”
At the same time, Amy was working in Iowa and told a friend there about KKEF. She said, “Sign me up!” And the momentum has continued. We only have 6 more children who need sponsors this year!
We hope you will talk about what you’re doing to help KKEF for only $50/month or $600/year at your next family dinner, exercise class, work event, or wherever you spend time with the kind hearts in your life.
Let’s keep the momentum going!
We Need Your Help
With 11 students remaining to sponsor before the end of October, when school fees are due, we definitely need your help!
If you haven’t yet sponsored and would like to, or you are a sponsor and want to give an extra one-time contribution, please visit the How You Can Help page and donate today! Our students, who range in age from 5 to 18, are so thankful for having their education secured, which includes two meals every school day, and removes a huge burden from their family’s daily concerns.
