The profits of GIRLS WHO ROCK, our benefit concert on June 10th — in addition to proceeds from its raffle and $500+ raised on GiveForward.org — allowed us to triple our goal of sending a girl to school in Tanzania. We raised nearly $6,000, enough to enroll three girls in AfricAid’s Kisa Project, which is an Internet-infused sponsorship program, where girls also learn leadership and computer training. They will graduate from secondary school — something 95% of Tanzanian girls currently cannot afford. We’ve been emailing with our first student, Elizabeth David, for the past month, and many of you have interacted with her via comments on this blog.
Now, we begin our exchanges with Happiness! Please leave her comments and questions, and we’ll pass them along.
