Greetings,

Thank you for taking the time to visit my fundraising page! If you find yourself reading this, chances are you know me well and are familiar with my passion and love for teaching. I have worked in the field of Education for over a decade, primarily in Early Education and Special Education. I guess time really does fly when you're having fun! I feel blessed to be working in a field I truly enjoy.

Why fundraising for Education is important to me...

I believe working in this field is my purpose on this planet. It has provided fulfillment and healing to my soul and is something that has been so helpful in my life. Many know the last 3 years have tested my strength and perseverance but the children keep me going! Their free spirits accompanied by their love for learning (in addition to their love for their teacher!) gives me a sense of hope and accomplishment.

With that being said, I have decided to spend this upcoming summer giving back to the children! Come the end of June, I will be leaving to teach in the Kwahu Mountains of Ghana, Africa for 8 weeks, through Atlas Volunteers. I am so excited for this opportunity and am looking forward to making a difference; and I'm asking for your support to make the most positive impact possible in the lives of others!

Donations will go towards:

- Rural Literacy Solutions ( library building in Ghana) and GVI Charitable Programs ( funding for Early Education in Ghana

-Transportation to school each day

- Food and clean water

- Legal requirements (VISA, vaccines/immunizations)

- Everyday teaching materials (chalk, paper, pencils etc.)

To learn about my program and this experience, please visit:

It's hard to put into words how much any support towards this adventure means to me, but thank you endlessly.

Operation Teach Africa, commence!

With gratitude,

Kelly
