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.

April rains

The hot, dry, dusty summer is over and the long rains came on schedule.  The landscape is green again.  Hopefully favorable growing conditions will continue and the harvest will be good.  April is one of the three months students are off school and the high schoolers are back at Kisima sharing their experiences.

Laura Anne and Jamie arrived home recently from spending over three weeks at Kisima.  I look forward to hearing about their trip!
