Maren was an amazing person who recently lost her life. She was taken from us right before she turned 30 years old. In her 29 years on this Earth she managed to touch many many lives through her incredible way of loving others. She saw the world in a unique way and her purpose in life was to make it a better place.

The children of Africa had a special place in her heart and she believed in the power of education. So to honor her memory and to mark her would be 30th birthday, her friends and family would love your help in raising funds to donate in her name to specific children to pay for their school fees. 

The money will go to the Maren Castro’s Scholarship Fund within the Wayair Foundation:  https://www.wayair.org/marens-scholarship-fund

Children that otherwise would stay out of school will have a chance at a good education. We, together with the Foundation, will follow their journey for many years to come to ensure their well being and development. The more money we raise, the more children we can sponsor. 

Please help us fulfill her goals!

Hi everyone,

I wanted to let you know that we reached our goal and we are very very thankful to all of you for helping us find a silver lining in a very difficult situation.

With all your help not only did we changed two girls' lives but we found comfort in seeing how many people loved Maren. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts.

We will be closing this fundraising campaign for now, and we will do it again in October to celebrate Maren's birthday in November. However, our work will continue throughout the year and you can keep track of it and keep supporting it by liking our Facebook page Maren Castro Scholarship Fund (@marencastrofund).

Please also take a minute to fill out our survey, it would be very helpful to receive suggestions and ideas: https://forms.gle/nGF2ifQiZHNp1qUU8

We appreciate you and hope we can keep in touch!

Hi everyone,

I’m sure that by now you have heard of the devastating floods that have affected Malawi. Since this country was so beloved to Maren we have decided to send the remaining funds to help out in the relief efforts. If you’re interested in supporting the people of Malawi further, please consider making and additional donation.

Thank you for your continuing support in keeping Maren’s dreams and love alive!

Angel and Blessi travelled to school yesterday and had their first day in school, they where accompanied by Blessi's father, Mr Mtasha. Attached, we are sending a few photos and receipts from the first school term so we can share them withour donors of the GoFundMe campaign.
Aneta from Wayair Foundation will travel to Tabora region next week to supervise the construction of the school in Ulyankulu and she will also hopefully visit the girls at the school to see how they are settling in.
I am so happy we where able to do this together and give the girls this opportunity . We are covered for 2 years now and we will do this campaign every 9 th of November to honor Marens dreams and bringing education to an other level. If you wish to support on a monthly basis we will open a web site where you can donate for other kids to go to school too. Thank you all for this great and incredible beautiful step towards Honoring Maren.
