Start small,change a life!!

I have a dream that i want to fulfill but i have'nt yet.I am still looking for sponsors and those who can help me fulfill my dreams.As it reaches morning we encounter more and more problems.cases of rape are most.Girls are sexually abused by men and even close relatives.We need to stop this by working together.Education is very sparse in our area,especially in rural areas.A school can help a great deal.I have collected ideas from various points,and i thought of having a vegetable farm by the school compound.The school is to be built in a rural area.We have a piece of land by the lake at Sori.We thought of Sori because it is a very big area with a dense population,but unfortunately with about five schools and three hospitals.We want the school to be boarding so that the girls wo'nt encounter problems getting out of school every day.If anyone has an idea or can help us by sponsoring us,you can write to us or call(+254-34724057)or mail:leahokeyo@yahoo.com.YOU CAN HELP START SMALL,JUST A SMALL CONTRIBUTION CHANGES LIVES.
Love,
Leila

New school for girls

Hi Leila,

You are such a champion for girls and for education. I am so inspired by your initiative Leila! Here is an organization whose website might be helpful to research funding opportunities for your school.

Global Fund for Women: http://www.globalfundforwomen.org/cms/
They have a great toolkit that you can download to learn more about grant writing and finding donors, it's called the Women's Fundraising Handbook: http://www.globalfundforwomen.org/cms/apply-for-a-grant/information-for-...

Also, did you see this post by Ila in Resource ExChange? I thought immediately of you when I read about this opportunity. You should submit something!
