Fueled by passion to bring self-love and acceptance into our communities, Global Hearts is a "for purpose" organization that was established to provide loving homes and education to children in need around the globe. Lifting them up and inspiring them to reach for something higher.
Our first project is to raise the fees to support 5 Kenyan girls through four years of high school. In Kenya, school fees are required to be paid once you enter high school. If the family is not able to pay these fees...education stops there. We want to support these girls as their options are limited...if they are unable to continue their education, they either get married, attempt to get a job as a "domestic", or do whatever they can to support themselves, which continues the cycle of poverty.
Our intention is to raise $25,000 which will be used to support these 5 girls throughout their high school career. This money will pay their living expenses (food and board), uniforms, school fees, books and necessities for all four years.
With your love and financial support, these girls will complete high school and go on to contribute to society and break the cycle of poverty...please give from your heart and contribute today.
These 5 girls have been selected as some of the top girls from schools in poverty stricken areas around Nairobi with the greatest potential and great need. Meet the girls!

Leesh is an orphan, she lived with her grandmother that is sickly and unemployed. Due to her family situation she was given a chance to live at Holy House. She needs assistance in payment of school fees, uniform and upkeep.
Her father died of HIV/AIDS and her uncles sent her mother and the children away. The mother went back to live in her father's compound. In January last year she died and left Leesh and her siblings to live with their grandmother who can barely walk because of her aching back/ arthritis. When Leesh was accepted at HH she came only with the clothes she was wearing since whatever she had were rags which she could not use any more.
She wants to be a doctor, her best subject is Chemistry and her recent performance marks are 749 out of 1000 (B+).
"My name is Gladys. I come from a family of 7 people, 3 adults and 4 children including me. My family is financially unstable and so we rely on peasant farming done by my father to meet our daily needs. My mother is jobless. School fees have been a problem to pay since the amount of money that my father earns doesn't cover both our family needs and the school fees.
Mine is to work hard in school so that one day I can lift my family from the bad situation they are in and help those who are unable... like me.
After completing my academic studies, I would like to be a surgeon.
During my free time, I prefer reading the bible and playing volleyball
I will be glad when my dream is fulfilled."
