We’d like to share this Thank You letter to extend our gratitude and to show how much your involvement in the students’ lives means to them: the opportunities, hope, and validation you pass on. It’s always special to get personalized letters from the students. We are grateful to witness their power of determination as they work hard, sacrifice comforts, and even break tradition to pursue their education.

Glorian Vienda placed 1st in our 8th Annual Writing Competition at Lenana Girls’ High School in Kitale, Kenya. Here is a quote from her letter, which you can read in its entirety below:

“It feels so good to be a winner of the 8th Writing Competition. This is because I didn’t expect this for I have not had this chance before… I am thankful, for you have helped me to know that as a girl I really can… You have really made me happy.”

Thank you for making moments like this one possible!
