It’s been a little while since we last posted here, and for that we apologize. However, we are happy to announce that things are going well with our small organization, and that we were able to put 14 girls through school in 2014, and have met our goal of 15 girls for 2015.
Kay is currently in Guatemala on a month-long trip where she is meeting with several of the girls and is busy planning and training the Guatemalan staff. The focus of this trip is to prepare for her retirement and and the transition period that will follow. Kay hopes to provide the staff and leaders of the newly formed Asociacion “Kateri Tekakwitha” with the support they need to take responsibility for the running of the organization there.
With all these wonderful changes in mind, we are looking for volunteers and hope that you or someone you know would be interested in helping our great organization. Since 1997, the Kateri Education Fund has provided financial assistance to over 60 young women. With your help, the Kateri Education Fund can continue to help young women stay in school and complete their education beyond elementary school. Kateri Education Fund graduates have gone on to pursue careers in accounting, teaching, nursing, music and the arts, and business.
