Learn about our story!

Isn’t public school free in Kenya?
The Kenyan government pays for grades K-8. However, families have to pay for their children to attend high school.
What is the cost to send a girl in Kenya to high school?
The range of fees is determined by the quality of the school and if it is a day school or a boarding school. For example: $175 pays for a day scholar for one year in a local high school. Also, $650 pays for a top rated boarding school.
How do you choose the girls that you support?
We send out applications through Seavuria in October and those applicants are screened for us by our partners in Kenya and then sent here to us in November. We gather to read the applications and then use a rubric to determine our choices.
How is your scholarship different?
Our scholarship is different because the main goal is to build a global friendship. We do not want to just send money over to Kenya, we want to get to know the girls.
How do you know the money is benefitting?
We require that the girls send us transcripts of their grades each quarter.
How do you plan to sustain the project?
Recently, four younger girls have joined the PETRI club and they are going to continue it when the original members graduate high school.

Accessing Clean Water one LifeStraw at a Time

Because we partnered with three schools in Taita, Kenya we learned how important water is and how we can help to give people in third world countries better access to clean water. I learned that my partners’ water was compromised and they often were ill and missed school because of the unclean water. I wanted to do something to help these students.

During my project research I came across the LifeStraw and learned that it can clean 99% of all water even from a very unclean water source and it is easy to use. My “Call to Action” is to have LifeStraws sent to each of the students in Taita, Kenya so they could have an easy and safe way of filtering their water.

LifeStraw has promised to sell their device to me at a discounted price of $7.00. I would like to earn enough money to send straws to all of my 310 partners.

I would really appreciate it if you could donate to my cause and forward this email to others who you think might also help me.

Thank you for supporting SEAVURIA!

SeaVuria - Inspiring students to act globally by connecting them globally!

SEAVURIA is dedicated to connecting students and teachers across the globe, striving to create global awareness and sustainable partnerships.

Using STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) curricula, SEAVURIA engages students in the US and Kenya in synchronous studies designed to foster collaboration, critical thinking, and problem solving. Global health scientists mentor students over the web, offering career information and cutting edge science ideas.

Technological tools afford us opportunities to connect and engage young people in discussions about important global issues. They learn from one another, serve as role models for one another, realize opportunities and are inspired to take action. The PETRI scholarship and LifeStraw campaigns are an example of student action projects.
