Dear friends and supporters,
Meet Elizabeth Njohi from Gitinga Village near Nyeri in Kenya. She graduated high school through our Githomo program last year and was accepted to nursing school. This is an amazing opportunity for a girl who comes from such a humble background and has worked hard to overcome the odds. Please read Elizabeth’s letter below and consider Seeds to Sew when thinking about buying a unique gift for that person next on your list so we can help Elizabeth pursue her dream of education. If you are able, consider a cash donation directly to her education fund. No amount is too small! (Her first year of tuition is estimated to cost $1,380 not including books and other related expenses)
My name is Elizabeth Njohi from Gitinga Village, Nyeri county. I am the first born in a family of three and a single mom who is a local farmer.
Our family has been through a lot in the past years. My youngest brother has a critical heart condition which started when I was back in high school. His condition worsened in my fourth year, only some few months just before I sat for my end of year examinations. My family condition traumatized me and the depression affected my performance.
I qualified to pursue a nursing course at Mathari Consolata Missionary Hospital College. I am humbly requesting for your support on school fees and maintenance to complete my studies. With your support, I will be able to break through the cycle of poverty and also transform and empower my future, that of my family and the community as well.
