Sponsor our Kenyan intern

LOHADA draws its strength from volunteers, but the current COVID-19 pandemic has severely limited these partnerships. Luckily, a student of one of LOHADA’s board members has volunteered to intern from September 2022-2023: James, a college senior from Kenya finishing his Bachelor’s degree in Management Science and Engineering at Stanford University. While James is eager to spearhead initiatives for students on his home continent, we want to help him cover travel, lodging, and other work-related expenses. Help us fundraise so that our intern James can begin his work at LOHADA; our board members will match your donations (up to $5000 USD). We appreciate witnessing in real time the power of a determined community.
