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.

Trip dates set!

It's been a long time in coming but the dates for the trip to Kisima are finally set for April 12-27. So far there are three of us who are definitely going and a couple of other "maybes." We'll be in Kisima part of the time and in Nairobi part of the time. Be assured that everyone who is going will be paying all of their expenses themselves. All donations to Kisima go directly to Kisima.
