Keeping HIV+ Kenyan girls in school

€6,155 of €7,000 goal

Raised by 43 people in 17 days
Created November 23, 2018


We want to keep 20 beautiful HIV positive girls in school in Kenya. We have been funding girls education since 2011 through art and this has improved their confidence and health.
Our vision is to empower young women, invest in their ideas and grow those ideas into long-term opportunities.  To make these dreams come true an education is essential because education opens doors, it provides knowledge and skills to make the best choices.
It costs on average 300 euros to keep a girl in school, this includes fees but also essential school books, uniforms, shoes, one hot lunch a day, and sanitary towels, without which school is out of reach.  We also fund the support groups.
To date the funds have been raised from Gelise's artwork and that of the girls ( www.gelise.org), but this year we need your help - if the funds are not raised these girls will not be allowed back in school in January - the most important to us is not to let them down!

We are delighted that you are on this page and ready to donate, every little adds up to a lot. For donations of 100 euros or more we will send you a personalised hand print from one of the children on an original canvas. Please give generously - all the money goes straight to Kenya and is spent on girls educational needs.
