California High Tea Helps PCH Orphans Go To College
On February 13, a group of about 60 ladies met in Southern California to enjoy High Tea and to help raise money for PCH orphans graduating from high school. The event was a rousing success with over $8,000 pledged to the benefit of the PCH College/Vocational training fund. We currently have one orphan attending nursing school, Valentine Kekoi. She is doing quite well with her studies and has set the example for the six seniors now in high school who will graduate at the end of this year. It is estimated that the cost for college or vocational training beyond high school will be $4,000 per year per student. So, a total of $28,000 per year needs to be pledged to meet these needs for at least the next three years. If you would like to join in and pledge for this great cause, please visit our website at http://provdencekenya.org and click on the GIVE tab. There, you will find the link to the College/Vocational training fund.
The girls for whom college/vocational training funds are needed are as follows:
