Merit hosts dinner for Mtulu, its sister school in Kenya

r By Kristi Gilbert

Friday, March 1, Merit High School is hosting a benefit dinner and performance to raise funds for our Kenyan 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.

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 on Friday, March 1 from 5:00-7:00 pm. The evening will feature a dinner, student performances, and educational information about Mtulu. Tickets for the dinner can be purchased at https://secureinstantpayments.com/sip/cart/event.php?EID=1980.
