This Friday, October 27, Merit High School in Springville is hosting a benefit dinner and performance to raise funds for our African sister school, Mtulu.

In 2011, Merit College Preparatory Academy adopted Mtulu. Since then, Merit’s annual fundraising has built desperately needed classrooms and bathroom facilities and purchased books and supplies for Mtulu students. Ninety miles from any urban center, Mtulu lies in the driest, poorest region of Kenya. Mtulu’s 500 students walk between four and eight miles to school, often on empty stomachs. Due to the recent famine, many of the Mtulu students are without adequate nutrition.

Our Print Advertisers

Merit partners with Kenya Keys, an NGO devoted to the development of Kenyan schools, so that 100% of the money raised through Merit goes directly to the Mtulu school. This year, all proceeds will go to purchase needed classroom materials, food and supplies for Mtulu students.

We invite the community to come participate in our annual Mtulu Dinner Friday, October 27, from 5:30-7:30 pm. The evening will feature a dinner, student performances and educational information about Mtulu. We are also excited to host a performance by the Ngoma Y’Africa Cultural Center, a local nonprofit organization whose mission is to preserve and increase understanding of African culture. Tickets for the dinner can be purchased at http://meritacademy.org/mtulu/.

Please join us for a wonderful evening.
