Before I begin I would like to thank you for taking the time to read this message.
Crossroads is an elementary school located in Hamisi, a village in western Kenya. Three years ago I had the chance to spend some time there and meet some amazing people. But Crossroads is not only a school, it is also an orphanage, a home for many of the students. Speaking of the students, I couldn't find the words to describe how endearing these kids are and above all, how they are full of dreams, each one more ambitious than the other, each one bigger and more beautiful. They don't lack the self-confidence to achieve their dreams, nor do they lack the desire to learn, to work hard, or to study more and more, no. Their only obstacle, unfortunately, is one they have absolutely no power over... funding.Crossroads is funded primarily through financial aid, sponsorships, grants, and donations, and while it's not always easy to do so, so far Crossroads has always managed to keep its head above water and get by. But it has been 3 years now and in 3 years a lot can change.
Like everywhere else, the pandemic has not spared Hamisi, an institution that used to welcome more than a hundred students, now only welcomes 80. Today Crossroads Springs is on the verge of closing, the situation is critical: teachers are no longer paid and are leaving, meals are rationed and the number of students is gradually decreasing.
For most of those who leave the school, it is a general abandonment of education that unfortunately follows. This is an elementary school, a step that is more than essential for a good academic success afterwards. This is why I am appealing to you today. Of course any help will be appreciated no matter how much, all that matters is your support.
I ask you from the bottom of my heart, help the students of Crossroads Springs to get a little closer to their dreams.
