Lawreen is the second of nine children born to two peasant farmers in Webuye, Kenya. She wants to finish college so she can make a better life for her 8 siblings.
Help us reach our goal of raising $1284 to fully fund the remainder of her college education!
Lawreen's older sister was fortunate enough to attend the Technical University of Mombasa, but couldn't finish — when their father passed away, the school fees became too much. Now Lawreen Nyae has a chance at completing that education that her sister had to leave behind.
With the help of a scholarship she was granted last year, Lawreen was able to excel, remaining a strong B– student during high school. Now Lawreen Nyae has been accepted to Masinde Muliro University of Science and Technology. The only things keeping her from getting her university education — and achieving her dream of becoming an accountant — are the steep fees for schooling, meals, transportation, and accommodations.
With your help, Lawreen can continue her education, and pave the way for her future career.
Consider making a monthly gift. When you give just $13 monthly, you can help ensure Lawreen or another girl in Kenya has a permanent scholarship until she graduates.
GROW (Girls' Right to Opportunity Worldwide), a signature project of GreaterGood.org, is dedicated to improving girls' well being by supporting and monitoring innovating projects that identify and remove barriers to girls' education across the globe.
About Wildlife Works:
Wildlife Works' mission is to bring market–based solutions to conservation of biodiversity by providing sustainable economic benefits to rural communities so they can aspire to a better life or simply feed their children and put them through school without damaging the environment in which they live.
GreaterGood.org has ultimate authority and discretion with regard to the distribution of its funds. All expenditures made are consistent with the exempt purposes of GreaterGood.org.
At Wildlife Works, the mission is clear: to provide people in wildlife-rich areas with sustainable economic alternatives to poaching and deforestation. When you buy a Wildlife Works product, you become an agent for conservation, and are wearing the brand that says you won't sit quietly while the last wild things in the last wild places disappear forever.
GreaterGood Network is proud to partner with Wildlife Works to bring you our special selection of high quality, conservation-minded products. Each exclusively designed garment is produced in Kenya at the Rukinga Sanctuary's fair-trade and carbon neutral EcoFactory in the Kasigau Corridor. This partnership creates jobs for the local population, which in turn ensures they can feed their families and send their children to school without relying on the destruction of crucial habitat -- home to such endangered species as Grevy's Zebra, Cheetah, Lion, African Wild Dog, as well as over 2,000 African Elephants.
