July 2013, I was able to travel to Africa and meet some amazing people who not only touched my heart but have forever impacted how I view the world and my role in it. I want to return the favor because every child deserves an education, to be inspired, and to have the means to go after their dreams

Donate for Dreams is a campaign focused on raising monetary funds for a primary school (Illoilero) in Kenya. So far, this campaign has been able to supply 230 uniforms to children who needed one to attend school.

The campaign was born through a college Capstone project. It has been such a huge success and the children and parents are very grateful for the help. So, I thought, why not keep acruing donations to continue to help these families! 

lloilero Primary School is a governmentally sponsored school located in the Amboseli region of Kenya near the Selenkay Conservancy. Currently the government only sponsors 3 teachers. There are 353 Masaai Children attending this primary school. Thankfully, there are 7 sponsored teachers who work very hard to make sure their children can continue to pay tuition. However, there are a lot of supplies the children still need in order to have a successful school year.

 

Meet the Dreamers

Meet Nkunina Keturai. He’s 17 and is currently in class 8. When he grows up he wants to become a politician as he wants to assist his fellow Kenyan as a Member of Parliament. He also wants to promote education and enable more children to gain access to education.

Meet Kilasho Kupere. She is 8 years old and is currently in class 3. When she grows up, she has dreams, to become a teacher. She wants to become a teacher because she has a strong desire to help her community by educating children to continue building a strong community through education.

As you can see it doesn't take a large donation to help fulfill a dream.

Give whatever you can. It's easy to make a paypal account. Also, if you want to hand me your donation in person or mail me a check that is acceptable too. 

After the money is distributed, annually, stay tuned for pictures of what your donations helped to accomplish!
