Good news from The Friends Project! We successfully funded college scholarships for two students from El Sauce, Nicaragua, where we raised money for, built and opened a kindergarten in 2014. Yessenia and Alonso are in their final year of school; she’s becoming a nurse and is already in an internship in a rural community and Alonso will become an English teacher. They are both children of farmers  in the coffee-farming cooperative with whom The Friends Project works.

Julius Sairowua, a young Masai man in Kenya, is spending his second year as a safari guide with Porini Lion Camp, which is on Masai-owned conservancy land and nearly staffed by all Masai. We fundraised to provide a full scholarship for him to complete guiding school in 2016. He was chosen by his elders and it was his dream.

Two photos: One of Julius at the Porini Lion Camp and the other a photo he took on a morning.

Thank you to all!
