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.

Spring project

While I was at Kisima, Martin and I met with the village elder and some of the members of the community. The community spring on the village elder's property and near Martin's house is the only water source for people living within a 1-mile radius. Martin presented a plan to the community to improve the spring by lining it with bricks. He asked people to collect bricks, gravel, and sand and said that he would be responsible for providing the cement.
