Thank you, once again, to Johanna and Tim Masters for supporting Lift the Lid in improving the schools we sponsor. Your generous donation made in the name of new baby Axel will go toward Lenana Girls High School in Kitale, Kenya. Lenana is a boarding school for orphaned, vulnerable, and dispossessed girls from the age of 11 to 22. The best chance for young girls in Kenya to gain an education is through boarding schools, where they will be housed, educated, and protected from cultural traditions such as early marriage (at the age of 12 or 13) and Female Genital Mutilation.
Lenana has begun businesses such as agriculture, bee keeping, and dairy production, which, once developed fully, will provide enough income to cover the school’s running costs. The students of Lenana Girls High School will be taught entrepreneurial and life skills, in addition to their traditional subjects. Johanna and Tim Masters, we cannot express enough how much your continued support is appreciated.
