Well, here we are at the beginning of 2020 and January is almost over! A whole year waits before us to fill with good and wonderful things, to help those less fortunate, and to make the world a better place.

Your loyal commitment to helping vulnerable Kenyan students is not only admirable, but shows clarity of vision because you know that education is the key to alleviating poverty.
