7 year old, Amelia raises money for educational supplies in Tarime.
My name is Amelia and I am 7 years old. In May I held an Afternoon Tea Fundraiser for CfA. Family and friends came to eat some yummy treats and help raise some money. Everyone had a great time and ate lots of very yummy food. With everyone’s generosity $286.45 was raised. I hope the money will help buy some school supplies.
After watching a documentary on tv about the Rift Valley, Amelia became aware of how much she has compared to others. She asked me if she could raise some money for children in Africa. We searched the internet for a suitable charity. She wanted to help a charity that she could talk to in person and one that she could see how they were helping clearly. We found CfA and she had a meeting with Diana. Thank you Diana for taking the time to meet and support Amelia. She was very excited that such an important person was willing to speak with her! Duncan and I are very proud of Amelia and her desire to help others. One thing she has learnt through this process is that one person can make a difference and that person can be kid!
