Thank you letters

"The students I met at... [the primary and secondary schools] were very engaged, had dozens of questions for me, had a school assembly to say thank you to all of us and presented me with a drawing by one of the students... Most of the girls we support in this school come from Mathare, a section of Nairobi that is considered one of the largest slums in all of Africa. That the girls we support are in a boarding school about 90 km from Nairobi is a gift beyond what we can imagine."
