Sponsor a Child

Kisima’s director reports that once the children know they have a sponsor they hold their heads higher, have a spring in their step, and show a renewed dedication to their schoolwork. Sponsor a child for $300 per year. Younger students require two sponsors for full support while older students need at least three. The cost of books and exams during their last two years is quite high. Sponsor a teacher for $400 per year. Each teacher needs four sponsors for full support. When you choose or are assigned a child it would be great to write a letter to introduce yourself and include a photo. The kids LOVE to receive photos. Please do not send packages because they may not arrive. The address to send letters and photos is Kisima Academy, P.O. Box 74, Postal Code 50211, Naitiri, Kenya.

Fish pond update and fundraising project

There's been a hitch in the fish pond plans. They will cost more than originally thought and so will be postponed until more money can be raised. If you've been thinking of donating some money this would be a good time!

Here's what I'm doing currently to raise money--making mittens out of felted old sweaters. They're lined with fleece and are really warm. Great for winter walking!
