Our Sport Team has a new member! Pascal from Paris, is going to run the 12th February for the orphan girls of Upendo!
The race (half marathon) is going to take place in Barcelona.
HELP CECILIA AND MARTHA, 2 ORPHAN GIRLS, TO DEFY THE ODDS AND CONTINUE THEIR EDUCATION !
Cecilia (Cece), born in 2000, came to Upendo in 2003 with her twin sister after their parents died in 2000.
Cece wishes to become a Lawyer and serve as a role model for other girls like her.
Martha is born as well in 2000, she works hard to excel in school and hopes to become a pediatrician one day
Martha has called Upendo home for most of her life. She wishes to attend University so that one day she can take care of and provide for other people, just as she was cared for at Upendo when she was very young.
Back in 1997, Eunice W.Kamotho, the founder of UCRC the Kenyan NGO we support, decided to act and saved a group of orphans.
19 years later, despite difficulties, financial stress, setbacks and many crises, Eunice managed to lead 24 girls to a secondary education, 2 girls to University and College.
Also, 220 local children benefit from an education at Upendo Primary School.
SUPPORT PASCAL’S EFFORT! AND HELP CECILIA AND MARTHA TO PURSUE HER DREAMS
Sadly, only 48% of girls in Kenya attend secondary school, among orphans, the statistic drops even further.
The race is going to take place in Barcelona the 12th February.
The cost incurred by a secondary school education is approximately 1000 euros a year.
