Scholarships and Friendships for Global Solidarity
I have been lucky to be a part a great non-profit organization SEAVURIA, who with a wonderful group of high school Girls from Mercer Island high school (PETRI science club) have dedicated their time to raising money for girls in rural parts of Kenya to get an education. Having grown up in Kenya and having been a part of the Kenyan education, I understand the impact SEAVURIA and PETRI are making in establishing a scholarship for these Kenyan girls and how much this will change the trajectory of their future. In Kenya a high school education is not a right but is a privilege for those who can afford it, I truly believe we have the power to change that and give all kids a chance to achieve their dreams. Fifteen years ago I was one of those girls, with giant dreams and so much potential but didn’t have a means to accomplish my dreams. Please join me, Seavuria and PETRI girls in making a difference

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.
