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.

Your Support Can Change a Life!

I have been inspired by my older friends who started a scholarship fund for girls in Kenya to send them to school. It is a unique scholarship because their mission is girls helping girls by not only donating money, but creating a friendship. I have seen some of the letters and watched the videos and have been motivated to continue this fund as they graduate. The older girls have built friendships with the 16 girls they sponsored and we have read about their hopes and goals. I am excited to be a part of this global relationship and in order to do this I need your help.

Please consider making a contribution to my page to continue the scholarship fund, and thank you so much for your support!

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.
