School Tuition for Kenyan girls

In 2007 I spent 3 months in Kenya with a wonderful host family (The Barasa's- Martin and his wife Isabela, and their 5 girls- Caro, Mercy, Edna, Dori, & Maureen).  After seeing the awful conditions the 5 girls went to school in, I began fundraising (with all your support!) to send them to better schools where they have books, enough teachers, and don't have to sit two students to one desk or use  horrible smelling latrines that are fulll to the brim. 

Since 2009, your support has helped Martin's family immensely and I truly believe have helped to change these girls lives.

However, Martin has found an opportunity to become self sufficient and pay for his daughters tuition himself, which is why this year,  I'm asking for additional donations for Martin to buy a nearby piece of land that he can farm to  pay for his daugthers annual tuition. 

Meaning, this will mostly likely be the last year I am collecting donations because Martin will be able to fully support his mission of educating all 5 of his daughters.  

To break it down: 

$1200= Pays for land that Martin can purchase to farm to pay for all future education expenses. 

In Martin's latest email to me, he said that he has been using Danny Cow (Yes- I have a Kenyan cow namesake!) alongside a neighbor's bull to plow his current field of crops and was able to get a good return on maize.  He also wanted to thank all of you, and I thought it best said in his own words.  

"we thank you all a lot for your care and support. Ours, is to prayfor you and all who has changed my family to be at that position. All my daughters will have good life and will make us proud. They say many thanks to
you, and wish you the best. Greet Gia ,and Jason and all your angels."
yours martin
