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.

Exam results, new uniforms

The term two district exam results are out:

Class 8--#8 out of 111 schools
Class 7--#12 out of 117 schools
Class 6--#7 out of 80 schools
Class 5--#1 out of 51 schools
Class 4--#2 out of 51 schools

Wow!!  What great results!  Everyone, staff and students alike, are to be commended.  They are all working very hard.  Last week Martin brought in English and Swahili specialists to work with Class 7 and 8.  Some Class 8 students from other schools were invited to the sessions also.  Not only the students but also the teachers benefited.

One of the June visitors donated funds for new uniforms.  Judging from the photos, everyone was very happy to receive them!
