"Walk in Her Shoes"
Fundraising Campaign for 2021

September — December 2021

Last year we fundraised $15k through the "Sew with Her" Campaign. That put seven girls through full scholarships at the Heri Sewing College. This year we want to raise $22,400 to give all 14 girls full scholarships. Without our fundraising efforts as a non-profit, there would be no scholarships and the girls could not afford to complete the program on their own. We thank you for your continued support.

We truly believe Elimu Girls empowers her to become a community leader and entrepreneur ensuring financial freedom, self-worth, and equality. Obtaining a full scholarship will really change their lives.

When we sent a donation to Elimu Girls, I knew it was going toward purchasing sewing machines for these young women. The money wasn't going into a nebulous pot, but funneled into a tangible tool that enables these women to actively change the trajectory of their lives. Elimu Girls is an outlet for these women to grow their skills, be apart of a community and ultimately to transform their paths. I'm so glad to have found Elimu Girls and to have the opportunity to give to such a meaningful organization.

I care because empowering these young girls to be independent gives them hope, courage and confidence to the break cycle. What’s more beautiful and inspirational than that?

I feel like I am able to really make a difference in these girl's lives ever since I got involved with Elimu Girls. If that means working toward their financial independence and giving them the opprotunity to support themselves, I am all for it. They inspire me and I love seeing all of their creative creations.
