help Kenyan girl child 4:10 AM
Good people I share here below about a project that I am involved in and the areas of needs that I will be happy if any of you can assist. Thank you.
Basically, for me what I am involved in is the campaign against FGM and girl child marriage in Kenya. We face serious cultural problem of FGM and early marriages. I am trying my best to in campaign that is on going that involves over 75 girls at the moment. Most of the girls are HIV/AIDS orphans whom we have rescued and have gotten them to school somehow. Most of this girls ages range between 4 and 20 years old, with majority being under the age of 15 years. I am in the process of looking for funds for which I need to help to build a rescue centre with necessary facilities for the girl child. I need help in second hand clothes as most girl s are from very poor and desperate backgrounds, I need sanitary towels for most of them since you will not imagine what they use during that period of the month. I also usually get problems getting these dear ones to school. A fee of about 200 USD is charged for those in high school per school term (there are 3 terms per year), so I have been trying to look internally and externally for foster adoption so that friends can adopt some if not all the girl s and hep them go through 8 years of basic schooling without dropping out or with no interruption. If we can get them to finish high school i.e. 12 years of education the better. Therefore, I do empowerment campaign also with local people and especially with surviving members of the respective girls. Therefore, you can see that my problem and areas of need is really on real issues of basic needs. I need to feed these girls, protect their rights, empower them, and hope that they too get a chance to go through education process and system to the highest level.
I thank you so very much for your friendship, thoughts, and ideas. God bless you and all your involvement.
PS. May I request that you email me response
