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.

Plans are progressing for the trip to Kisima next March. There are several medical people who are interested in going so we hope to be able to hold a clinic not only for the children but for the people in the surrounding area as well. We also hope to build a swing set and possibly some other playground equipment. Most of us will work with the children in one way or another. Denise is going to be the musical director and plans not only to teach some songs but to form a kazoo band as well!
