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.

On Sunday the entire school plus some local government representatives celebrated the first Class 8 and their fine showing in the national exam. They started off by gathering in the dining hall for prayers and a sermon by a local pastor. Then they joyfully set out down the road joined by some community members and motorcyclists. The exam results were announced a couple of weeks ago and the secondary school selection will start January 20. The Class 8 students must be anxiously waiting to hear where they will be going.
