Future's for Children - Navaho Mentoring

Today I sent off my monthly donation to Futures for Children, and included the usual allowance for the Navaho student that I mentor. We also exchange email. She's a senior, and is getting ready to graduate. Futures has a 97% rate of kids graduating, which is much higher than the 46% in the general Navaho population.

The Futures for Children store has some beautiful things. Its been great watching the store grow from a mentors idea to reality. The guy who runs it retired and moved to Phoenix to set up and run the online store. '
