On 12th of June, we got a chance to attend this amazing beach volleyball fundraising event at R.E Mountain Secondary School to raise money for PA-MOJA.
We had visited the school a few weeks back and we got to meet the PA-MOJA team and had an interactive session with them. At the end of this, the whole club, led by Mrs. Francis and Annie (president of the PA-MOJA club) invited us to this fundraiser.
Victor, James, Jake Schmidt, Mr Graham Schimidt and I arrived at around 10:30am.We got a warm welcome from Mrs. Francis and Mr. Magdy Ghobrial, the Principal. The Volleyball games had already started with different teams playing. We were all excited to be there.
The beach volleyball was very competitive with 4 courts going at once. Victor got a chance to join one of the teams and show off some of his skills, as he is really good in playing Volleyball. Victor’s team even made it to the quarter finals. In the meantime, James and I helped with selling cookies, pop, sandwiches, pizza and water for the players and the people watching. Later on we played basketball and then we took 45 minutes to pump up this big love ball and then kicked it around with some kids, it was fun.
As the time went by, the number of people arriving to the event increased,which was good for sales. The money that comes from such fundraising events really plays a big role in brightening the futures of the needy kids back in Kenya. We are very grateful for the effort that RE Mountain gives, which helps make such an event and the connection with their sister school, Tharua Secondary, in Kenya, a success.
Thank you to the PA-MOJA R.E mountain secondary school team for raising this money and for inviting us to the event, we had a great time.
