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.

Easter weekend

Doesn't the school look nice with flower beds and new paint? Saturday was a special day there. The children were so happy to have a special porridge in the morning and meat and rice at lunch. In the afternoon they watched a DVD--a rare treat.

Thanks to funds from Shiloh United Methodist Church Martin was able to begin construction on the Class 6 classroom--but this is all the further he will get until more funds come in!

Moving day!

It was an exciting day at Kisima--the girls moved into their new dorm. The children had a very special time with balloons to play with, a DVD to watch, and special treats to eat. They watched the DVD (by the way, it was "Indian in the Cupboard") on Martin's computer. It was the first show they'd ever seen.
