We first got to know Linet when I was in sixth grade and my school was raising money for Open Hearts and Minds. For one year I was her penpal. I enjoyed learning of her life in Kenya and how much the school meant to her and the affect it was having on her life. When I learned families could sponsor a student at the school I asked my parents if we could sponsor Linet. For the past five years we have been her sponsor. We love getting updates from her, hearing about the subjects she likes and dislikes, and how much she loves the school. My Mom likes knowing Linet is getting two hot meals a day. But, we especially like knowing she is getting an education.
