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.

This and that

The kids are enjoying the new dining/assembly hall.  Only the 123 orphans are in the photo.  When the 120 community children are there also it's a full house.
This is one spiffy set of latrines!  There are three latrines on the opposite side as well making a total of 14 in all.  Five years ago there was one.

 Victor, Nickson, Dennis, Kevin, and Irene are happily sporting new uniforms.
It looks like these boys are having a good time washing their uniforms.

New uniforms

The sports teams have uniforms thanks to two caring and considerate boys who wanted to share their Christmas with the children of Kisima.  Thanks, Kendrick and Garrett!  Shoes have been ordered and will arrive next week to complete their outfitting.
