Maasai in May/Kitsap Great Give Profitable Partnership

Maasai in May/Kitsap Great Give Profitable Partnership

The 8th annual Maasai in May event at Central Kitsap Presbyterian Church in Bremerton, WA was the 2nd annual partnership with Kitsap Great Give. And what a profitable partnership it was!  Kitsap Great Give raised more than $1million dollars and MWEEP raised more than $7000. Because of successful events in 2014, MWEEP is sending 40% more girls to secondary school this year and now those girls are guaranteed another year of school in 2016.

Matching the date of 5 May, Cinco de Mayo, the menu for our typical salad dinner was a Taco Salad and this year we happily had several men join us.

 Zach Aho set up several computers so guests at the event could easily make donations to Kitsap Great Give.

loanna 2015 1 - CopyLoanna Day was the featured speaker and shared stories of how the women of MWEEP Kenya have become empowered as a result of the education they have received with the help of MWEEP. She also had an opportunity to visit several of the schools where girls are attending secondary school with fees provided by MWEEP.  The opportunity for being successful in school has been enhanced by the MWEEP Kenya women who keep track of the girls and assure they are attending school. They have also planned seminars for the girls during school holidays.

Thanks to generous donors who  have supported MWEEP during the last 7 years MWEEP is currently supporting  71 girls in secondary school, and 21 young women in post-secondary school. You are making a difference every single day in the lives of these girls and women.
