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.

April 3, 2011 The visit

A group of 17 people from five states just arrived back home after a very rewarding and productive trip to Kenya. I'm working on photo albums of the trip and of the orphans but for now here's a photo of the welcome ceremony. Several members of the group held a medical clinic and treated 360 children and adults, not only from the school but also the community. Several other members installed playground equipment and built bookshelves. Other members taught music, dental health, and even how to build with Legos and Lincoln logs. More details to come.
