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.

Christmas Day

The children and staff at Kisima celebrated Christmas in the new dining/church/assembly hall.  There was great excitement as they celebrated the birth of Jesus with a cake and tea and biscuits.  Everyone at Kisima is very grateful for the new building.  It means that the children will not have to stand outside to eat their meals or eat them in their classrooms if it's raining.  It will also give them a wonderful place to gather for their church services and their school assemblies.
