SUPPORT ANA’S EFFORT! 

PLEASE HELP CECILIA AN  ORPHAN GIRLS, TO DEFY THE ODDS AND CONTINUE THEIR EDUCATION! 

Like Ana, help Cecilia to reach her Dream and continue her education! (Secondary school)

Our Sport Team has a new member! Ana from Madrid is going to run the 02nd April for Cecilia and the orphan girls of Upendo! The race (half marathon) is going to take place in Madrid.

Cecilia (Cece), born in 2000, came to Upendo in 2003 with her twin sister after their parents died in 2000. Cece wishes to become a Lawyer and serve as a role model for other girls like her.

History: Back in1997, Eunice W.Kamotho, the founder of UCRC the Kenyan NGO we support, decided to act and saved a group of orphans.   19 years later, despite difficulties, financial stress, setbacks and many crises, Eunice managed to lead 24 girls to a secondary education, 2 girls to University and College. 

The cost incurred by Cecilia secondary school education is 900 euros a year.  (includind school fees, Personal effects, Transport) Sadly, only 48% of girls in Kenya attend secondary school, among orphans, the statistic drops even further.
