“Hello Elya, You are my angel sent from above! Having you to sponsor me through my college is a miracle, I can't believe it! I want to take this chance to thank you for taking me on as your other kid and paying for my college. I joined college last week and we have started learning already. I am really enjoying the classes. I promise I will do my best! May God bless you, Elya, and give you many years to continue blessing other souls as you are blessing me.”

"Even as an older sister, an aunt and a godmother I am constantly overwhelmed by the joy I experience in being a mentor and "mum" to Mercy. I love our constant conversations via WhatsApp where we share photos of our activities and families and keep up to date on each other's lives. Mercy is an amazingly brave, smart young woman who is going to make a terrific nurse. I love her enthusiasm and optimism along with her desire to care for her family and improve all of their lives. Being involved in the S.H.E. Fund is the first time that I can truly see my support at work and the personal connection between me and Mercy is invaluable."
- Pam Brewster, a S.H.E. Funder
“Dear S.. H. E. Fund, I am so grateful because now I am in school and studying Community Health. My parents are grateful too! They didn’t believe me when I told them I had faith that somebody somewhere would help me go to college. And now my dream is coming true because of S.H.E.!”

"Funding a girl from the Safe House changes things for her forever. But it also really changes things for you. Our family had a real relationship with Regina. It was not just a matter of sending her money. We talked to her on the phone. My kids emailed her. We sent gifts back and forth. I spoke to her regularly and still do. We’ve become a part of each other’s lives in a way that will outlast any need she has for funding."
- Joan Semling Bostian, a S.H.E. Funder
"My goal in Life is to contribute to what matters. Education matters. Education for girls and young women matters even more. When I heard Kim speak of the Safe House it was as if she was offering me an opportunity to be part of something that really matters and makes a difference. I could not resist and I am so happy I am funding Rose."
