Ted and Kathy Truscott have agreed to provide a match to the Friends of Ngong Road Annual Appeal for the sixth year in a row. Ted and Kathy first became involved when Ted learned that his colleague and friend from Ameriprise, Paula Meyer, was founding the organization. A few years later, another colleague of Ted’s, Amy Johnson, also joined the board and became heavily involved in setting up a program to provide life transformation for children through education.
Ted and Kathy believe in the power of education to transform lives. They both studied languages abroad and met while in college. Ted said, “Education brings awareness and choice to a person’s life. We support Friends of Ngong Road because lives are being completely transformed and without this program these kids otherwise wouldn’t have a chance. Paula and donor’s commitment to the students makes us proud partners with Friends of Ngong Road.”
Friends of Ngong Road sponsorships cover the education portion of the program including school fees, uniforms, and books. The Annual Appeal ensures all kids have access to other program elements such as the computer lab, library, caseworker support and holiday food packets for especially needy families.
