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.

September 12, 2011 Another tilapia pond

Thanks to Bill and Debra Kirby of The Tilapia Project (see the link on the right), there is another pond to raise tilapia at Kisima.  In the photo it has just been dug and filled--it will clear up in a few days.  The fish are a wonderful source of protein for the children.  We appreciate so much Bill and Debra's continued interest and support.
