Hello Friends, Family, and Supporters Around the World!
My name is Mirja Fowler and I am a second grade teacher getting ready for a teaching mission in Africa!
Many of those that know me, know how passionate I am about education and working with children that come from not ideal backgrounds or simply need special care. I am a firm believer that all children deserve a fair chance at education. Unfortunately, too many children do not have the resources or family backgrounds to gain access to primary knowledge. When they do, educators are often overwhelmed with ratios of 1 teacher to 50+ children. Classrooms are not what we are used to today in the western part of the world. In small villages throughout Kenya, proper learning materials are not available, and electronic tools such as laptops Smart Notebooks, or any other technology devices great for learning.
I will join an amazing team to begin a 30-day teaching and childcare project, in hopes to make a valuable impact with the goal of broadening the horizons of many children in the small villages of Kenya. Team “Impacting Kenya” will use 30 days to educate local Laotian children, offering our assistance with the care of young children placed in childcare centers, and focusing on children with special needs.
It is my goal to raise enough funds to assist the best I can, by providing educational materials and funds to assist with any life-changing needs the school facilities and childcare homes in these small villages may have. I am looking to raise $3500 to help with all the expenses of this project.
***ALL CONTRIBUTIONS ARE STRICTLY FOR HELPING THE CHILDREN OF KENYA AND MISSION EXPENSES****
**I will provide weekly updates on how you were able to bless the children of Kenya!***
Please know that I appreciate any type of awareness you may be able to assist me with. Even if you are not able to contribute to the cause, please consider sharing the link with others.
Thank you so much,
