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.

Kisima celebrates Christmas

From Martin:
"The time has come, the time is now, and Kisima Academy is joining the rest of the world to celebrate the birth of our Savior Jesus Christ. Kisima children, staff, and my family joined hands together to remember a wonderful moment as it occurs on December 25th every year: Jesus born and crucified because of our sins so that we are saved.
The sermon was presented by Madam Margaret from the book of Luke 2:11-20. The teaching touched the hearts of the children and they counted the blessings from God through our friends from the United States of America. Their lives have changed drastically and we glorify Our Lord. They are able to feed, being taught how to farm and carry out the necessary procedures leading to successful yields. These skills will be advantageous for them when they grow up and after completing their education. As many families travel to various picnic places to celebrate the birth of Jesus, the Kisima children move around the school compound and praise the Lord for providing the necessities to them, that is, permanent shelter, clothes, food, and education.
We thank God for making for making, maintaining, uplifting, and sustaining Kisima to the required standards. This becomes practical because of the hearts that God has touched on the behalf of Kisima. I take this chance to appreciate all the prayers, donations, and all the support from our friends, well-wishers, and sponsors for sharing the little they have with the Kisima children. May our Lord God reward them in a mighty way as they continue standing together with Kisima. God bless."
