Travel Fund for Rebeccah Wambui

Rebeccah Wambui is a 17-year-old  student at Agape Hope Schools in Dagoretti, Nairobi, Kenya. Last month, Rebeccah and her team were selected as finalists in the Innovate Kenya 2018 Competition , where she developed a prototype of a speed bump detection system intended to reduce road accidents in her community. She has been selected as one of four youth delegates representing Kenya at the London International Youth Science Forum  on July 25 - August 8, 2018. We are raising funds to cover her airfare, accommodation, and visa fees.  Rebeccah's trip is also being supported by  Young Scientists for Africa (YOSA) , Global Minimum , and the Mawazo Institute .

Please join us in supporting this rising STEM youth champion!


Here is a breakdown of her trip expenses:
Return Flight: $1200
Expedited UK Visa: $450
Room and board for 2 weeks (discounted by LIYSF): $2000
Pocket money: $100
Ground transportation and other miscellaneous expenses: $250
