It is with great excitement that I can say that this team raised the funds for Paul and Geoffrey to attend MOI University this fall. I sent out many letters to friends and family to see if they would assist me in raising the funds for them to attend the university. I want to give thanks to everyone who was able to support this cause. As Leila, Sophia, Alex and I saw at Asliong, education is extremely important. I can not stress this enough. We hope these two young men will be the start of many from Pokot to attend college. We hope to have doctors, lawyers, business men and women, and pastors coming from the place we taught students how to use a laptop.
It has just been one year since our team was teaching students at Asilong, but I keep in touch with many of them through email. I will have Paul and Geoffrey post on this blog every month about the lessons they are learning. Also I would like to call anyone who has been keeping up with our blog to action. We have raised funds for the first year, but will need more funds to keep these two brilliant men in college for four years. If you would like to help by giving a donation, you can do this by sending a check to:
University Baptist Church
1701 Dutton Ave
***In the memo line of the check, please make sure that you put “teacher scholarship” so the office will know that it is for the Teacher Scholarship Fund.
