Light of Hope Student Update
Much like the rest of the world, Light of Hope has had to be patient and open to things ever changing. During these past several months we have had a constant flow of girls coming and going. This time has been treated like a summer or winter break where some of the girls stay with relatives for a time then switch with another group and so on. We are excited that this month all of the girls will be coming back as we start getting back to normal.  Some of the projects going on for the girls are e-learning, discovering their special gifts, learning more trades, and working together as a team with the staff to maintain their home and school.

The Friend of Hope program creates an opportunity to develop a very special friendship with a specific girl. You’ll have the chance to exchange pictures, share life stories, and pray for each other.

An important statistic:
According to the Borgen Project: “One year of secondary education for a girl in Kenya corresponds to over 25 percent increase in wages; if girls were to finish their secondary education, child marriage would be reduced by at least 50 percent.” Know that your support is essential to helping us empower Africa’s leaders of tomorrow!
