The first graduates of Little Rock ECD in Nairobi's Kibera slum have taken their secondary school entrance exams, and six have passed with flying colors! Many of you were touched by our blog posts about Jane and Vincent
(pictured below), and we are so pleased to tell you that both of them have qualified to go on to secondary school.
Eliminate Poverty Now can fund four 4-year scholarships, but we would love to send all six of these amazing, inspiring, hard-working kids to secondary school. This opportunity is their ticket out of the slum and the chance to realize their dreams.
Can you pledge a half or full scholarship? The funds required are not minimal, but they are not exorbitant: a full scholarship is $900/year for four years.
School starts in a couple of weeks so we need your response by 5pm EST on Sunday, February 10th. You can respond to this email, or go to our DONATE page by clicking here.

Thank you so much for your time and generosity. We hope you will join us in supporting these amazing kids.
