We educate poor children. We do so without regard to race gender or religion. We have very low overheads relying mainly on volunteers. We run a child sponsorship program. We educate hundreds of children and know that with your help we can help more.
The reason I started sponsoring a child in Kenya was because I wanted to give something back and after speaking to other sponsors I knew it would really make a difference. I have been sponsoring a lovely little boy for three years now and it’s the most rewarding thing I have ever done. I was lucky enough last year to be able to fly out to Kenya and meet him. I spent two weeks seeing him, teaching some classes, painting education pictures around the school, helping out at dinner times, taking them swimming for the first time and of course meeting his family, the teachers at the school and seeing where they live. The whole two weeks were inspirational and I am returning back to Kenya this November.
It truly is the best experience to see how so little I give has gone so far in helping not only my little boy to get an education but seeing all the other children benefit from all the hard work the sponsors put in when they visit. Seeing the child you sponsor for first time is beyond words, the feeling really is indescribable and when you see how grateful and happy all the children are its worth every penny!
