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.

More progress

There were lots of nice donations at Christmas which enabled Martin to put the finishing touches on the preschool classroom, build four new latrines bringing the number up to the required one per 25 children, and buy many required items like textbooks, chairs, tables, and cooking pots. Thank you to everyone who contributed to making the lives of the children better.

Yet another addition

Here is just-born Roger, born to Barb. The herd now numbers six--Barb with calf Roger, Alexis, Clarabelle, and Shiloh with calf Mission.
