Travel Fund for Rebeccah Wambui

$2,910 of $4,000 goal

Raised by 36 people in 11 months
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!

Dear donors,

Here is a photo of a very excited Rebeccah on a plane for the very first time in her life. With your support, and with the help of her dedicated school principal, family, and other local supporters, we managed to secure her passport, visa, and plane ticket to London. She will spend the next two weeks immersed in a hands-on and interactive STEM enrichment programme surrounded by peers from over 75 countries. Thank you for making Rebeccah's dream a reality!

We are still short $2500 to cover the balance for her room and board, and the LYISF organizers have very generously given us an extension through end of next week to settle up. Please spread the word in your networks to help us meet this target.

Thank you for generous support, and sending warmest wishes to you all from Nairobi.

Sincerely,

Team Rebeccah
