Hi SFX Alumni,
Our Fund Raising for Bro. Gregory (Marist Schools) in Kenya has been a bit slow and worrisome, at about half the pace of last year. In order not to disappoint our adopted students we pledge to help, we earnestly ask every SFX Old Boy to donate to achieve our goal of 140 scholarships of US$200 each. We can easily succeed if each of us donate just a small amount. Last year we had exceeded our goal!
The needs and hardships of missions are real - Bro. Gregory's recent email exposed 2 inconvenient truths. 1) He was knocked out of internet communication for a long period because his computer crashed and there was no professional help anywhere nearby. 2) Their students had to do fix-up and maintenance work on their classrooms before the new school year could start.
Please read all about our Campaign on our web page: http://www.sfxboys.com/brogregory4.htm
Let's not forget the alternatives for those young students not going to the Marist schools will be a life of manual labor in the fields, the markets or on the streets - a life of Great Expectations snuffed out ab ovo!
Please help generously!
