According to Mandeep Dhillon, Kenya Club president and junior, Kenya Club will have a meeting Sept. 7 to plan for its Homecoming booth and other upcoming fundraisers and events. Dhillon said she has high fundraising goals for this year and hopes to expand Kenya Club within CHS.

“At (the next) meeting, we’re hoping to get more volunteers and try to plan out things we like to make; things we can sell like art, bracelets and little creative items that we can just give to people or auction off,” Dhillon said.  “For the Homecoming booth, we’re hoping to teach other people how to do henna so that we can have various volunteers for that.”

Dhillon said she has new goals for Kenya Club to increase membership and raise more money this year.

“This year our goal is to try to (raise enough money for) about 20 (scholarships for Kenyan orphans), so we’re hoping for that, and it’s about $350 per scholarship, so our goals are high. Just to try to get more fundraisers than we did last year within the school, because we didn’t have any actually in CHS; they were more broader ones with the Global Interfaith Partnership,” Dhillon said.

According to Kathy Hallett, Kenya Club sponsor and science teacher, raising more money is especially important this year because, due to past fundraising success, more Kenyan students are advancing through the school system than ever before.

Hallett said, “What’s happened is, as we’ve been supporting students going through their primary years to get them into secondary school, they’re getting there and some of them are getting into college, but it costs a lot more money in secondary school. We need to raise more money to continue to support these students.”
