FROM: THE HEADTEACHER MAKONGENI PRIMARY SCHOOL
TO: ELSEBA ADHIAMBO
Dear Elseba, It gives me pleasure to inform you that the school will be closing on 16/08/2018 for the August vacation. I wish also to inform you that we have recorded a tremendous improvement on the academic performance of all the girls you have enrolled in the sanitary towels initiative. Of my particular interest is one RIZIKI, who I happened to offer a shelter to put her head on. So far the girl has impressed me. In the last test we did just before the end of term examinations, she scored 280 marks out of a possible 500 marks.
In the end term results whose reports we will give when the schools open on the 10th of September she scored a whooping 360 marks. Based on what I know about her this is commendable and I can authoritatively confirm that her future prospects is bright. I would like to thank all those who have supported her and revived her hopes for a better future. God bless you all. I am however sad to inform you that due to the government policy of de-localising teachers, I have been moved to a new station in Nyamira County and will report to that station in a weeks time. On that note, I am requesting you to take RIZIKI in and offer her accommodation. I will continue checking on you every now and again and ensure that she achieve her aspirations.
Once again thank you and may God bless you.
Your in service Sadia Elizabeth.

Note from PICC Founder, Rochelle Indo
“I trust with certainty that each letter we receive from the girls of PODI contain stories of true experiences of these young ladies. Riziki’s story gave me an overwhelming feeling of admiration for her courage and resilience in the face of such horrific family tragedy. I personally feel a kindred spirit to her. I have express the desire to be a figure in her life somewhat of a godmother. I commend Bradon and Elseba for the loving kindness they are demonstrating by taking Riziki into their care. In this month’s Awareness Campaign for PODI, I’m asking each one to give what the Lord has place upon the heart to give, and if led, to designate a few dollars to go directly to help the Adhiambo’s in a small way to provide for Riziki. This is not a request from them. I am making this appeal for help. Example: If a donor gives $10 indicate on the line where you would put the company name ‘PODI’ $3 for Riziki. Thanks to all for your continued support to these girls.”
PICC Around the World
This category “PICC Around the World” is set up as a convenient way to give to charities outside of the U.S. that use PayPal without having to pay a large fee each time.
We recently learned that one charity PICC promotes had experienced a change in the PayPal fee for donations. It went from zero to $4.99. This means if the donor wants to give $10 the transaction would total $14.99
We at PICC are trying to find ways that will be more convenient to give and fee-free when giving outside of the U.S. The good news is PICC will absorb the fee by sending quarterly (or when the total of gifts exceed $49) each month.
All that is necessary is that the donors use the optional area ‘Company Name’ to indicate the charity the gift is to be given to. PICC has been around since March 2016. If you trust this vehicle and would like to give without having to be hit with a hefty fee, then you are welcome to use PICC Around the World.
Currently, we promote only one out-of-the-country charity. Many donors are reluctant to give using gateways they are not familiar with; neither do they want to absorb extravagant fees when giving a small donation. The charity has suffered because of this. But if there is a way we will find it. Love finds a way.
