Proceeds from our June 10 benefit concert — GIRLS WHO ROCK, featuring incredible acts like Kat DeLuna, Shontelle, MoZella, Lenka, Cara Salimando, and Kelli Pyle — will sponsor a girl via AfricAid‘s Kisa Project!
Ashley Shuyler, the 25-year-old founder of AfricAid, a member of the She’s the First network, just sent us photos of the Kisa Scholar that GIRLS WHO ROCK will support. This means that everyone who attends GIRLS WHO ROCK is co-sponsor of Elizabeth David! Isn’t she beautiful?! Her love of learning radiates from her smile.
The most exciting aspect of Elizabeth’s sponsorship — besides the fact that it’s made possible by a really fun concert! — is that she will be enrolled in a two-year leadership and computer training course, in addition to secondary school. She’ll learn how to shoot her own video and edit it, to digitally tell the story of her life and community, and send it to us online.
You’ll be reading lots about Elizabeth on the She’s the First blog over the course of the next year. Please feel free to leave her a greeting in the comments!
Be sure to buy your ticket to GIRLS WHO ROCK to become a co-sponsor…and who knows, maybe we can fundraise enough in one night of music to sponsor a second Kisa Scholar!
