Buddy up

Working together

Why not work with a group of friends to cover the costs of a whole scholarship? Working as a team to support a young person through school is a fantastic and rewarding commitment for any group of friends, colleagues or a family to make.

How does it work?

It's super easy, all you need to do is invite your friends to join you. We've prepared an email that you may want to use but it's entirely up to you how and when you ask your friends. Once you've invited your friends send us an email and we'll let you know when you're all signed up.

Example Buddy Up Email

Subject: Let's buddy up. Help me support a child through school.


I've just signed up to help support a young person through school. How would you like to 'buddy up' and together cover the full costs of their scholarship? If we work together we can change a life forever - pretty amazing!

The scholarship covers all tuition and accommodation fees for a whole year and also ensures they'll have three square meals each day and even covers the cost of school uniforms, books and stationary. The scholarships are awarded to young people living some of Kenya's poorest communities.

So what do you say? Two of us can provide a full scholarship by donating just £20 a month, two more friends and that's just £10 each. If you're up for it you can sign up here - www.peoplecharity.co.uk/scholarships.

Let me know if you're in or if you can think of anyone else who we should invite to join us. :o)

See you soon buddy
