What the girls have said …….

 
 

Our Impact

We began in January 2006, simply sponsoring 4 girls in one school In 2018 we are sponsoring 118 girls

Our founder, Gerald Maithya, wanted to commemorate the short life of his sister, Caroline, who died when she was only 4 years old. Since then, our numbers have grown steadily and in 2018 we are sponsoring 118 girls in 5 schools.

This growth has been possible due to the generosity and support of our sponsors – the many generous individual sponsors who each sponsor a girl through school, plus a small number of charitable organisations whose donations have enabled us to develop our overall programme.
