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.

Soccer win

A LOT of rain makes for a very messy soccer field.  Kisima won 2-1 against Brightsite.  Hurray!
You might have noticed that the school in the background is not Kisima with its neat blue-trimmed brick buildings.

A truck!

Wonderful friends bought Martin a truck!  Such a blessing!  Up until now he has had to call a motorcycle to take him to the highway where he could catch a bus into town.  Even bringing back supplies like soap and toilet paper was a problem.  Now he can pick up what the school needs from textbooks to mattresses.  And when children have an emergency in the middle of the night he'll be able to take them to the hospital.  Huge thanks to our wonderful friends!
