Hannah’s hope was that the less fortunate of the world would have a better life. Hannah along with four beloved friends:
Meredith McClure, Bailey Goodman, Sara Monnat and Katie Shirley died together in a tragic automobile crash just days after they graduated from Fairport
High School. Each of these beautiful young women brought lots of love, compassion and high energy into the lives of all of us in Fairport, New York.
Each of these angels will be sadly missed in our community and in our world.
Hannah Congdon traveled with us to India in April of 2006 to help tsunami orphans. She laughed and walked with us on
May 12, 2007 in a Walk for African Orphans at Perinton Park in Fairport, New York. Hannah and her dear friends touched all our lives as described
in an essay published in the Rochester Democrat and Chronicle from July 1, 2007 titled: “School chief’s role model is 18-year-old.”
Due to your kindness and generosity, Hannah’s Hope has become a reality in western Kenya. Joining Hearts and Hands constructed three classrooms in 2008 and finished a two-classroom addition in 2010. In January, the school will house pre-school through grades 2. We hope to add classrooms each year until the school houses all grades, pre-k through 8. The school is called St. Hannah’s.
We would like to keep you posted on the progress of the construction and show you the school when completed.
