One Year Ago Today...

One of our sponsored students, Jane (or "Jenny" Muthoni) lost a life-long battle with HIV/AIDS. She was just 16 years old.

The world has lost a beautiful and inspirational young lady. Her dream, from the very first time we met her in a hospital bed, was to be able to finish high school. Thanks to a generous sponsor, she was able to attend school in the months prior to her passing.

In remembrance of her, here are a collection of pictures of Jenny on her first day back to school and blog posts that we have written to share her story.

I am so sorry to hear of Jenny's passing. My thoughts and prayers are with her family and loved one's. I know that you would have done everything for her that was possible, so thank you for helping to make her time with us a little better. Sincerely, Kathy
