In Memory of Beverly E. Carroll

$1,815 of $2,500 goal

Raised by 21 people in 6 months
I am Kinyatta Gray, daughter of the late Beverly Esther Carroll. My mom suddenly and tragically passed away on October 21, 2018. I know that I had one of the best mom’s ever and I wanted to find a way to honor her legacy immediately after her funeral. I needed to do something meaningful, impactful, and bigger than myself. And that’s when I remembered that one of my mother’s high points in her life was her missions trip to Kenya in 2005 with other Christian Fellowship Assembly members. The most rewarding part of her trip was meeting a woman named Maggie a woman who created an unofficial orphanage in her home for children who lost their parents to AIDS and other kinds of illness and disease.  She also met a man name Obwiri Kenyatta whom she affectionately referred to as her son who assisted with facilitating communications with Maggie.  My mother was once an orphan so she had a heart for everything that Maggie was doing to help the children.  My mom did what she could to support Maggie financially from the states, but the support eventually came to a stop. I can recall my mother frequently longing to return to Kenya and even more importantly to give to the people of Kenya. Well, mom, this is for you – in your honor, I’m (with the help of others) giving to the people of Kenya. The children in the orphanage in 2005 have all grown up – are in high school and doing well. So, the donations will support the 11 children that Maggie now cares for in her home orphanage.
Thank you for supporting this cause. Blessings to you.

Hello! This is final reminder that this campaign I initiated in honor of my mom after her untimely passing, will end on 12/1/18. I have met 50% of my goal! The funds donated will be dispersed in 3 increments over the next three months. Quite a few of you were able to donate and understood the importance of supporting my mom's legacy and her passion. I appreciate you.

I found information compiled by my mom when she was heavily involved with this effort and so I'm attaching a pic of my mom in Kenya with the original group that went on the missions trip!

I have also heard from Maggie in Kericho Kenya who has informed me that she has/will be able to use the funds to:
1. lease a farm with vegetables
2.start another project of planting tea and coffee to sell next year
3. have funds for school fees next year

So be assured that your donations will make a difference. Much love! ~ Kinyatta
