Miles for Moz again at the Louisiana Marathon

"Miles for Moz" will again be raising funds at the Louisiana Marathon Jan. 18, 2015 in Baton Rouge. Pictured below is the dorm we hope to renovate using 100% of money raised this year. The dorm will be used to house young women in the area who would not have the opportunity to continue their education otherwise. Please consider helping us meet one of the greatest needs in Africa, the education of young women. Follow this link to our fundraising page and set up a team of your own.

The dorm we hope to renovate

It's located on the back side of our existing dorm...

...and was used as a hospital maternity ward during the war.

Just needs a new roof, windows, doors, a new floor and lighting

It has been one of my personal frustrations to see young girls here get married off sometimes as young as 13 years of age. Young girls like the one below often do not get a chance to experience their own childhood much less receive an education. It is the world we live in here in Amatongas, but it does not have to continue.
