Partnership with SIFE
Students at Bryan College work toward Gethsemane's school
Posted September 4, 2010
Gethsemane is excited and honored to announce our partnership with the SIFE group at Bryan College. The students involved in this group have commited to raising $20,000 during the 2010-2011 school year in order to start Gethsemane's secondary school in January and purchase a new van for our homes. This is a huge gift! We are grateful to this group of students for their desire and initiative to further God's kingdom and change the culture in Kenya.
SIFE (Students in Free Enterprise) is an international non-profit organization whose purpose is "to bring together the top leaders of today and tomorrow to create a better, more sustainable world through the positive power of business." The organization has numerous teams on college campuses throughout the world who are earning college credit and valuable business experience by helping people. This year, the SIFE team of Bryan College has chosen to make Gethsemane's secondary school and van its primary project.
The theme of the Bryan team's projects this year is education. Throughout the year they will conduct various fundraising projects that incorporate their purpose of helping local businesses near the school but also accomplishing their project for Gethsemane's school. Project ideas include helping local businesses advertise to Bryan students, hosting fundraising events at the school such as competitions or auctions, the sale of unique merchandise, and much more.
We at Gethsemane are thankful for the good things that Bryan's SIFE team will be doing in their community and for the children in Kenya. It is truly a blessing for us to be partnered with this group of dedicated, entrepreneurial students. We look forward to what God will do through them this next year.
