Thank you for your support of our sister school in Ndavaya! We received over $1400 for scholarships for the girls in Ndavaya -- who usually are taken out of school at an early age for work or marriage.
Our relationship with Ndavaya began when one of our teachers, Monica Stein, visited the village in 2009. In 2010, St. Francis of Assisi School signed a Covenant of Understanding with Immaculate Conception Primary School in Ndavaya, Kenya formally establishing a relationship between the two schools. We have made a commitment to send teachers to Ndavaya each summer, and last year had Clark Hernandez and Briana Stein-Cruz make the amazing trip.
Your donations in the past enabled us to send over $6000 for the completion of a new well. The community of Ndavaya now has much-needed fresh water for the families in the village and the surrounding area.
