The Maasai Education Foundation’s annual MEF #GivingTuesday Matching Fundraiser starts at 8am Tuesday and runs from Dec. 1-13, 2020
This is MEF’s biggest fundraiser of the year and Facebook will be matching donations for a few seconds starting at 8:00 AM EST. Other MEF supporters will be matching the first $10,000 in donations not matched by Facebook. Matched funds will be used to complete the Phase I dormitory construction. Last year we raised $43,890 through our 2019 #GivingTuesday fundraiser and this year our goal is $48,000: $26,000 in scholarship funds and $22,000 to complete the Phase I dormitory construction. The $26,000 in scholarship funds is what our generous donors who sponsor children at the school donated in 2020. The cost to sponsor a child in 2021 is the same as last year, $700, and includes tuition, room and board, clothing and medical care for the 11 months the students are at the Engaruka English Medium Primary School. The school serves children from pastoralist families that often do not attend primary school. We currently have 210 children in grades pre-school through 3rd grade and will have pre-school through 4th grade in January with 30 new pre-schoolers. Please consider donating again.
