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.

Much to be thankful for

The Class 8 students are working hard to prepare for their exams.  A recent and much appreciated donation from Jamie and Laura Anne enabled the purchase of review materials.

Another wonderful donation bought Charlie (Charlene? Charlotte?).   Thanks, Signe! 
The boys' and girls' soccer teams and volleyball teams plus cheerleaders had a lively day of competition with a couple of other schools.  They performed very well against a strong, more experienced, and older team.  Thanks very much to Garrett and Kendrick for donating the uniforms, equipment, and coaching!  
The outstanding academic performance of Kisima students is due in large part to the teachers' commitment and to Martin's leadership.  Martin organized a seminar for the teachers where they talked about goal setting, teamwork, and professionalism.
