Student GoFundMe Page

Hello my name is Ethan King and I am raising money for the Wusi Primary School’s library. This school is located in Taita Hills, Kenya, and right now they are lacking in books for their 800 students.

I am raising money for this schools library as a part of my Passages project. I have been in communication with both the school headmaster and the school’s teachers and they have provided me with several budgets detailing the exact books they would like to purchase with the funds they receive. In Kenya $10 can purchase up to 8 English reader books.

Please visit the GoFundMe page to donate so that the school can buy books for students. https://www.gofundme.com/wusi-primary-school-library
